Have you had your teeth cleaned in the last six months? In-depth dental cleanings are one of the simplest preventative measures that can be utilized, and your Mansfield dental care team are happy to perform a gentle cleaning that will keep you healthy and add confidence to your smile.
Gums and teeth benefit from brushing and flossing, but over time, dental plaque and stains build up on tooth surfaces, which may lead to harder deposits that are difficult for brushing and flossing to remove. This is where the dentists at Mansfield Dental Center step in: A simple ultrasonic scaling procedure is performed using small instruments to remove hard plaque trapped beneath the gums.
Ultrasonic scalers act primarily to remove plaque and stains from tooth surfaces in areas that normal brushing and flossing can’t reach. A substantial build-up of tartar creates an environment that harbors gum disease, and cleaning these areas can act to prevent gingivitis, tooth decay, and loss of enamel from teeth.
