Polishing after a cleaning is essential 


Regular dental care involves more than just scraping tartar off the teeth. Thorough dental care involves scaling, probing and polishing. These procedures can reverse the gingivitis process and keep the teeth and gums healthier for a longer period of time.

After the teeth are scaled and probed we spray them with chlorhexidine to further help eliminate the bacteria that are causing gingivitis.

Polishing the teeth makes them look whiter. It also smoothes off the enamel surface and makes it more difficult for bacteria to adhere.
