The Significance of Cleaning and Polishing

The professional name for dental tooth cleaning is “prophylaxis”. Tooth Cleaning is all about removing plaque buildup and is the initial step in the tooth care process. Tooth cleaning is a part of good oral hygiene and one of the most advantageous things you can do to keep your teeth healthy.

Protecting Teeth with Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings, which are usually applied to the grooves of the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (usually the premolars and molars). The painted-on liquid sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel. Sealants protect the chewing surfaces from tooth decay by keeping germs and food particles out of these grooves.

How To Avoid The Dreaded Halitosis

Halitosis is the technical term for chronic bad breath. In most cases, halitosis is a result of poor dental health care as the decay of food particles and debris in the mouth produces a sulfur compound that causes the awful smell.
