Regular plaque and tarter removal from above and below the gum-line is critical in order to maintain the health and integrity of our teeth. When heavy loads of toxic bacteria are present in the mouth our teeth are prone to cavities, gingivitis, and periodontitis. Regular scaling plaque removal can help prevent and slow these common dental diseases.
If your teeth/gums are typically quite sensitive during your dental cleanings we have multiple options to help. Our clinic can use needle-free numbing gels or full local anesthetic "freezing".
Our Fee*: $67.17/Unit

In order to remove stubborn stains from your teeth it may be indicated to perform a polishing treatment. Different lifestyle factors usually determine how quickly we accumulate stain such as tobacco use, marijuana use, coffee, tea and red wine consumption.
