Dental Cleaning

Plaque is a film of bacteria that adheres to the surface of your tooth. This film can be removed with regular brushing and flossing. However, accumulated plaque eventually hardens thus becoming tartar (or calculus), which requires a professional dental cleaning to be removed. Poor oral hygiene can lead to tooth decay, gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) and bad breath (halitosis).

A dental cleaning consists of removing plaque and tartar buildup as well as stains that are present on your teeth. The Ordre des Dentistes du Québec recommends having regular professional dental cleanings.
