Professional Teeth Cleaning


Professional dental cleanings are performed by one of our experienced specialists at Signature Dental.  Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

Removal of calculus (tartar):   Tartar is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Tartar 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.  Plaque produces bacteria  which in turn produces toxins and poisons that inflame the gums.  When this inflammation begins, it causes periodontal (gum) disease.


Teeth polishing:  We will remove stains and plaque that cannot otherwise be removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
