Dental X-Rays and Deep Cleaning in Santa Ana, CA*

Procedure Details

Our patient had extensive tartar and calculus build-up in consequence to not seeing her Dentist for an extended period of time. We ended up doing a before and after dental X-ray and deep cleaning to show the difference after removing the heavy build-up. It is important for many reasons to not let tarter build up around the teeth: Tartar, also known as dental calculus, is a mineral build-up that is made from bacteria, saliva, and plaque. Unlike plaque, tartar has a yellow, sometimes brown color and its easy to see above the gum-line. It forms or mineralizes when plaque hardens on the teeth. Tartar build up is bonded strongly to the tooth enamel and can only be removed by a dental professional. If tartar is not removed it can cause decay, bone loss, and gum disease.
