Professional dental cleanings (dental prophylaxis) are
usually performed at the exam appointment. Your
Dentist may recommend extra separate cleaning
visits. The following procedures are performed:

-  Removal of calculus (tartar): Calculus is 
   hardened plaque that has been left on the
   tooth for some time and is now firmly attached
   to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and
   below the gum line and can only be removed
   with special dental instruments.

-  Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, almost
   invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a
   growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and
   saliva. The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that
   inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start
   of periodontal disease!

-  Teeth polishing: Remove stain and plaque that is
    not otherwise removed during tooth brushing
   and scaling.

Home care instructions: - Brushing, Flossing,
   Scrape, and Rinse.
