Beating Back Plaque

A professional teeth cleaning complements all the work you do at home.

Your mouth is home to colonies of bacteria and other microscopic organisms that typically exist in balance.

Bacteria particularly love certain foods, especially sugars and simple carbohydrates. As they feed they produce acids that can lead to tooth decay and gingivitis.

It is that slippery feeling you feel when you run your tongue over your teeth. This is called plaque and every time you brush and floss you help remove it. But even the most dedicated at this task do not brush away all of it.

Plaque, with time, accumulates minerals and hardens into tartar. Which can only be removed at a dentist's office.
