The friendly, knowledgeable dental hygienists at Andover Dental Group perform a thorough professional dental cleaning, as well as teach you how to continue to keep your smile healthy. Comfortable surroundings, exceptional care, and a welcoming staff are just a few of the reasons our patients love us. And, when you come for your dental cleaning appointment, you’ll understand why. Your dental cleaning appointment will include:

  • Tartar Removal — Calculus, or tartar, is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and must be removed by a dental hygienist.
  • Plaque Removal — Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on your teeth. It’s a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva. If not periodically removed, the bacteria produce toxins that infect and inflame the gums – the warning signs of periodontal disease.
  • Teeth Polishing — This removes stains and plaque that are not removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
  • Home Care Instructions — You’ll leave each dental visit with clear, easy-to-follow instructions on how to properly care for your teeth and continue to keep your winning smile – and a complimentary toothbrush!

A professional dental cleaning can help ensure you keep your smile bright and healthy. To schedule a professional dental cleaning with Andover Dental Group’s experienced dental team, please make an appointment or contact our Andover dentist office today.
