Fresh breath and a healthy mouth starts with regular check-ups and visits to your dentist and hygiene team. Having a professional dental cleaning once every six months can improve your appearance, your breath, and even your overall health.
Dental cleanings are a part of oral hygiene that involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing tooth decay, gingivitis and periodontal disease. The hygienist removes hardened deposits not removed by routine brushing and flossing at home. By removing plaque before it hardens into tartar and infects your gum tissue, we can keep you and your teeth healthy.
Additionally, the teeth are polished to remove plaque and surface stain to give you a nice, bright smile. Each preventative visit to our office is an important part of a patient’s program to prevent gum disease. We want you to keep your teeth for a lifetime.
