Your dental hygienist will work to remove plaque, tartar and stain build up on your teeth. Plaque, which is a soft, sticky film that forms due to food buildup, and tartar, a type of hardened buildup that forms on your teeth, can cause tooth decay if not removed. Even if you brush and floss regularly, plaque and tartar will still accumulate in your mouth over time.
After inspecting your mouth, your dentist will use ultrasonic teeth cleaning tools to loosen plaque and tartar, and will spray away debris with water. Lastly, the surfaces of your teeth will be scaled and polished. At our office in Surrey, we use the newest technology in ultrasonic cleaning, and constantly strive to use only the safest and most effective materials when examining your mouth.
