Dental cleanings are a preventative procedure that should be done at least twice a year or more depending on the patient. Regular brushing and flossing at home is important to your oral health, but professional dental cleanings remove layers of plaque and hard deposits that are otherwise difficult to remove without special tools. If not treated correctly, these deposits create ideal conditions for bacteria to grow and multiply and often lead to issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
During your cleaning, one of our hygienists will use special tools to remove any plaque and calculus from the tooth surfaces. After any buildup is removed, your teeth will be polished and flossed to leave them smooth, shiny, and free of plaque.
