Why are dental cleanings important? It is because the buildup around your teeth, also known to your dental team as plaque and calculus, can lead to cavities, bone loss, infections and can affect your overall health.
When you come in for your cleaning, our dental hygienists will not only scale and polish your teeth, but they will also evaluate and make sure you are informed about the health of your gums and bone that supports every tooth. We also want to make sure you leave with the tools and techniques you need to effectively take care of your teeth at home.
Every person’s mouth is unique so the state of your oral health will determine how often you should come back to see our dental hygienists.
