A dental cleaning removes plaque buildup from your teeth and gums. Over time, dental plaque eventually harden into tartar.
While you can remove plaque at home by brushing your teeth twice a day, only a dental profession will be able to remove tartar.
Routine teeth cleanings will help you:
- Prevent cavities
- Treat cavities early
- Prevent gum disease
- Avoid toothaches
- Avoid expensive procedures to repair teeth
If you have periodontal disease, you may have deep gum pockets around your teeth that trap food particles and plaque. In that case, our dentist will do a dental deep cleaning to clean gingival pockets and smooth out tooth roots. Deep cleaning teeth also helps receding gums reattach to teeth.
Schedule a dental cleaning appointment every six months!
Even if you feel like you have good oral health, it is still worth seeing your dentist every 6 months. That way, a small cavity can be repaired with a filling rather than a porcelain crown. A professional teeth cleaning twice a year will help you maintain a beautiful healthy smile.
