Regular professional cleanings are very important to your overall health and essential to keeping your teeth healthy and strong. Cleanings can help prevent cavities, tartar build up, gum disease, and even whiten your smile!
There are two types of professional teeth cleaning. The first is the standard teeth cleaning, which usually takes about an hour. Our dental hygienist will remove soft plaque and hard tartar. The other type of cleaning is a deep cleaning and is needed in cases where there may be infection or advanced stages of gum disease. This type of cleaning is completed over multiple appointments and removes the disease-causing bacteria deep under the gum line.
