Dental Exams & Cleaning

To assure that you and your family’s overall oral health is maintained, regular dental exams are recommended.  Aeris Family Dental recommends that you and your family have regular dental checkups every 6 months.  This will allow the dentists and hygienists to perform a comprehensive exam to look for any problems or potential problems that may arise.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Professional dental cleanings are performed by our kind and professional dental hygienists.  Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:

Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is now firmly attached to the tooth surface.  Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.

Removal of plaque:

Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth.  It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva.  The bacteria produce toxins (poisons) that inflame the gums.  This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease.

Teeth polishing:

Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
