GIO Dental recommends visiting our office for routine, professional teeth cleaning at least two times annually. This will help keep your teeth clean and healthy throughout the year and will help avoid decay from causing damage to your teeth and gums.
Plaque is a sticky deposit made up of millions of bacteria that accumulate on your teeth. These bacteria produce toxins that cause tooth decay. Also referred to as calculus, tartar is the coagulated form of plaque, failure to remove this can lead to gum disease. During your visit to GIO Dental in Station Landing, MA, your dentist will start by conducting a thorough oral exam to evaluate your oral health. The dentist Medford will proceed to eliminate plaque, tartar, and stains from your teeth. And lastly, your teeth are polished using a low-speed rotary brush equipped with a soft rubber tip.
