Professional Teeth Cleaning in Madison
There are many areas of the mouth which are difficult to clean on your own. During your preventative dentistry appointment, our oral hygienists will clean your teeth. This makes it easier for our dentists to then examine each tooth while you get the added benefit of an extra thorough cleaning.
Along with cleaning, we have in-office teeth whitening. This procedure, usually completed in under two hours, drastically improves the coloring of your teeth. Get the healthiest, best looking smile possible with Total Care Dental!
Plaque is a sticky layer of bacterial buildup which accumulates on your teeth over the course of a day. If you don't remove it daily, it will build up and harden over time. Certain foods cause more plaque than others. Sugary foods and starches are the main culprits for releasing plaque-causing acids in your mouth.
Plaque also produces substances which irritate the gums, causing redness and bleeding. If left untreated, the bones around the teeth can be destroyed - which means your teeth can become loose and fall out. Daily brushing and flossing greatly helps to remove plaque buildup - which is why brushing twice per day is strongly recommended.
