Removal of Plaque and Tartar buildup
Even with regular brushing and flossing plaque and tartar can build up on and between the teeth especially in hard to reach areas. Dr. Galan is always searching for better tools for making your visit comfortable and quick.
Periodontal Exam and Evaluation
Once plaque or tartar has been cleared, your gums can be better examined. The health of the gum is just as important as the health of the tooth. Dr. Galan and his team will check the firmness of your gums and look for any infections or abscesses that may be present in your mouth.
The last part of your teeth cleaning will usually end in a polishing. Since all the plaque and tartar is now gone your teeth can be polished to perfection and will feel smooth and clean.
