Plaque is a sticky colorless film that forms regularly on surfaces of teeth. If plaque isn’t removed by regular brushing and flossing, it hardens to form tartar. A professional cleaning is recommended in such situations.
We use different methods of cleaning to fit the individual child’s needs in order to remove plaque/tartar/stains and to demonstrate the appropriate brushing and flossing techniques. Furthermore, cleaning appointments introduce the young child to dental procedures and also facilitate a thorough clinical examination.
