Keeping your teeth clean is one of the most important things you can do at home. Brushing and flossing properly does a lot to keep your smile healthy. But no matter how well you brush and how diligently you floss, you are not able to stop at least some plaque and tartar from building up – and that tartar can lead directly to gum disease! You see, bacteria combines with the things you eat and form a sticky film called plaque. If the plaque stays on your teeth (some of it always will), it forms tartar, which is so hard to remove, only a dental professional can do it. We use the Cavitron for cleanings, an amazing little device that can comfortably clean above and below the gum line with super gentle oscillating sound waves. In other words, the Cavitron vibrates the tartar away for a fresh, clean mouth and teeth.
