Are dental cleanings important?
An Essential Part of Your Care
Dental cleanings are an essential part of your preventive dental care.
Brushing, flossing, and eating a healthy diet are the best ways to protect your oral health at home. Unfortunately, even if you are diligent about home hygiene, plaque eventually will begin to build up in areas between your teeth and just below your gumline. Once the plaque in these areas hardens into tartar, you cannot remove it with a toothbrush and floss alone.
We Recommend a Plan That Works for You
We customize hygiene care in our office and will recommend a cleaning frequency for you that is designed to keep your gums and teeth healthy.
Our hygienists will expertly and gently remove tartar from these areas so that you can enjoy a fresh, smooth smile again. When tartar remains on teeth for too long, it creates a harbor for bacteria, which will irritate the gums and lead to early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. Gum disease can progress over time, putting your teeth and your overall health at risk.
