Mmmmm… that pleasant feeling you get when you leave your general dental office with your teeth and mouth clean! There really is nothing like it! We love it too. Our doctor and hygienists do a fantastic job of not only cleaning your teeth and gums of all the debris and grime that builds up on, around, and under them, but also doing it gently and comfortably. We use the Cavitron ultrasonic cleaner to remove all traces of plaque and tartar. What makes ultrasonic cleaning so gentle and effective is that it uses sound waves to remove even the toughest tartar both above and below the gum line, without scraping.
So why is hygiene so important, besides the fact that it makes your teeth feel good? Bacteria! Plaque is a sticky substance that bacteria live on. While they are there, carrying out their bacterial activity, they excrete acids. These acids attack the teeth and cause cavities. Worse yet, if plaque is not completely removed, it hardens and turns into tartar, or tartar, a hard scab that only your Phoenix general dentist can remove. This scab accumulates both on the teeth and under the gums and can cause gum recession and infection.
Clearly, dental cleanings and hygiene visits to Diazo Family Dental & Braces is a win-win situation. Your smile looks and feels fantastic and the health of your smile is protected from damage. What could be better?
