Plaque & Tartar Removal at Pro Dental SA

At Pro Dental SA, our team performs thorough dental cleanings, as well as teaching you how to keep your smile healthy. Your dental cleaning appointment may include:

  • Removal of plaque & tarter: Calculus or tartar, is hardened plaque that has firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and must be removed by a dental hygienist or dentist. Our dental team will perform a scaling and polishing procedure, it is essentially a deep clean of your mouth. A special tool is used to get rid of the hard build up of calculus (tartar). The areas that are most concentrated on include below the gum line, behind the teeth and in the gaps between your teeth, as these are the regions commonly missed from brushing.
  • Teeth Polishing: This removes stains that are not eliminated during tartar and plaque removal.
