Understanding the Intricacies: Plaque, Tartar, and Bacteria

Visualize a delicate, almost invisible film enveloping your teeth – this is dental plaque. A fusion of saliva, bacterial products, and organic components, plaque, if unchecked, can evolve into tartar or calculus. This mineral-laden, hardened plaque can be particularly tenacious.

The role of bacteria cannot be understated. They find solace in the gum pockets and on tooth surfaces. While some bacteria coexist harmoniously with healthy gums, the more detrimental strains can induce inflammation and bone deterioration. Such harmful bacteria produce toxins, notably leukotoxin, that challenge our immune system’s defensive capabilities.

Precision with Evidence-Based Tools

Combatting these challenges requires precision and the right tools. Our dental hygienists employ “scaling and root planing”, an intricate procedure tailored to address harmful bacteria even in the most elusive gum pockets. Our selection of highly effective instruments, like the Hu-Friedy Gracey Curettes, accentuates this procedure at St. Lawrence Dentistry.

This detailed manual cleaning sets the stage for our ultrasonic instruments. Our highly effective NEWTRON® ultrasonic generators play a pivotal role. Their sophisticated vibrations generate minute bubbles, which, upon bursting, release energy formidable enough to dismantle the harmful bacterial cell walls.
