Scheduling regular teeth cleanings (we recommend every 6 months) has proven, time and time again, to be one of the most effective ways to prevent gum or periodontal disease. Teeth cleanings are a simple, easy, and gentle way to keep plaque and tarter in check and to keep your smile healthy. Plaque contains millions of harmful bacteria that live on your teeth—keeping these bacteria unchecked can lead to cavities, gum disease, and other complications that you definitely want to avoid!
During your teeth cleaning appointment you can expect:
Examination of gums for any signs of gingivitis (inflamed gums), or any other concerns
Removal of plaque and tarter
Thorough brushing & flossing
Deep Cleaning if required
