At Salin Dentistry, your oral care is our priority. Dental cleanings or prophy will remove plaque (soft, sticky bacteria) and tartar (calculus) deposits on your teeth that have built up over time. Our mouths produce saliva, which contains calcium that helps make bones stronger and also protects teeth. Although this seems to be a good thing, it also causes a build-up of calcium deposits on your teeth. Over time, it will be like limestone on a metal surface that needs to be removed. A professional dental cleaning, exam, and x-rays are recommended twice a year, along with regular brushing and flossing. This encourages clean teeth, maintaining good oral hygiene, and healthy gums. Our team will make sure this is a pleasant experience from the moment you walk in the door.
