Dental CleaningAn Overview
Professional teeth cleanings can help keep teeth and gums healthy and beautiful. Dental cleanings are done performed by one of our highly trained and compassionate dental hygienists. Dental cleanings allow for a more thorough cleaning than possible with at-home oral hygiene. Our doctors and hygienists recommend that patients get their teeth and gums professionally cleaned at least twice a year.
Dental cleanings can help prevent the development of tooth decay, tooth loss, and periodontal disease. Maintaining your natural teeth allows for a more stable bite and reduces the need for complex dental procedures. Frequent visits to the dentist office also allow your dentist to spot any developing oral health concerns in the earliest stages.
