Dental Hygiene in South Bend, IN

Microbial plaque is the primary factor in the development of cavities and periodontal disease. Although it may be possible to remove most plaque using mechanical oral hygiene aids, many patients do not have the motivation or skill to maintain a plaque-free state for extended periods of time. The indications for a professional cleaning and scaling include:

  • The removal of plaque, stain, and calculus;
  • The elimination of factors that influence the build-up and retention of plaque;
  • Demonstration of proper oral hygiene methods to the patient and caregiver;
  • Facilitation of a thorough clinical examination; And, the introduction of dental procedures to the child.

An individualized preventive plan increases the probability of good oral health by demonstrating proper oral hygiene methods and techniques and removing plaque, stain, calculus, and the factors that influence their build-up.
