Teeth Cleaning

Oral hygiene for life

At James Fitzgerald Dental, we strongly believe and are committed to offering preventative dental care. Our goal, as the top-rated family dental practice in Brisbane, CA, is to preserve the oral, dental, and overall health of our patients. The best way to achieve optimal dental and overall health is to schedule regular preventive dental care and teeth cleaning appointments with our highly experienced practitioners.

Why do you need professional teeth cleaning?

Although regular brushing and flossing can help keep your teeth and gums clean, it may not be sufficient. Within a few hours after flossing or brushing, a sticky, colorless film called plaque starts to accumulate on the teeth and the gum lines. When combined with the saliva and sugars in the food, this film produces bacteria. The harmful acids released by the bacteria can damage the enamel or the outer covering of the teeth, leading to the formation of tartar which are crusty and hard deposits that cause tooth or gum infections, cavities, or decay.

Professional teeth cleaning at James Fitzgerald Dental

As part of our preventive dentistry services in Brisbane, we offer professional teeth cleaning that effectively removes plaque and tartar which can cause a range of health problems such as cavities, decay, or gingivitis.

Regular teeth cleaning at James Fitzgerald Dental is the perfect way to preserve and enhance your oral health and to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

During the appointment, the practitioner uses specialized tools such as an ultrasonic instrument to loosen up and remove sticky and invisible plaque as well as the crusty tartar deposits between the teeth and beneath your gums. The time taken for this step depends on the amount of build-up and how often you schedule professional teeth cleaning. The dentist then switches over to a handheld tool or a scaler to gently scrape residual smaller deposits in the gums and between your teeth. The dental expert ensures complete removal of plaque and tartar before moving on to polishing the teeth and applying fluoride to brighten and strengthen your teeth.
