Teeth cleanings are an essential part of keeping your mouth healthy and beautiful.
Teeth cleaning removes the buildup of plaque and tarter, above and below the gums, and stains from the surface of teeth.
This buildup on the teeth may cause the gums to bleed, makes them puffy and red and can even cause bad breath. Brushing and flossing at home helps prevent some of the buildup, but only a dental professional can remove all the buildup and help you keep your gums healthy.
Your dental hygienist will discuss the frequency of your teeth cleaning visits that would benefit your specific oral hygiene needs; most commonly 4 or 6 month teeth cleanings are recommended.
