Why Are Teeth Cleanings Important?
Benefits of Teeth Cleaning
Some of the many benefits of a teeth cleaning session include:
- Examination: Before any actual cleaning, we examine your mouth for signs of any potential concerns. This allows us to pinpoint the areas that need the most attention.
- Tartar removal: Plaque eventually hardens into tartar, which is very bad for oral health. Tartar buildup can cause you to develop cavities and even gum disease. Tartar can only be removed at the dentist’s office by a professional.
Deep Teeth Cleaning
We also offer deep cleanings, which are more involved sessions that take one to two hours. The purpose of a deep cleaning is to remove excess plaque and tartar from below the gumline, which is not done during a regular cleaning. Deep cleaning can be an effective and necessary treatment for people with gum disease to slow it down and prevent further health complications.
