cleaning prevention
Dental cleaning involves the removal of dental plaque and tartar from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. A professional dental cleaning is recommended at least twice a year to improve and maintain oral health.
This professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.
Dental cleanings also:
  • Prevent tooth loss
  • Prevent gum disease
  • Detect dental problems early on
  • Prevent the need for extensive and expensive treatments
  • Provide fresher breath
  • Brighten your smile
For optimal oral health, we recommend that all our patients schedule a dental cleaning at least every six months. A teeth cleaning will remove plaque and tartar buildup as well as stains.
