Regular professional cleanings are an important part of maintaining good oral and dental health. For stain removal and polishing we use a ProphyJet, the latest technology for professional cleanings. Rather than that rubber cup with the flavored pumice paste, a ProphyJet uses air pressure, water and baking soda, to blast the stains off. It is less abrasive to the teeth and really cleans the areas between the teeth better. Most people benefit from professional cleanings every 6 months. However some people require more frequent cleanings – we will let you know if that is the case.
Dr. Sarah Baron, our registered dental hygienist performs most cleanings and periodontal therapy. Dr. Sarah is also a trained dentist, with many years of experience in the dental profession.
