Why Are Teeth Cleanings Important?

Teeth cleanings are an important part of your regular dental checkups, for good reason. They are necessary to prevent the development of tartar, plaque, cavities, and gum disease. Professional teeth cleanings are much more involved than a typical at-home brush and floss routine.

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

You’ll notice the difference between our professional cleaning and your regular routine as soon as it’s done. Not only are your teeth brighter and whiter, your mouth is significantly cleaner, fresher, and more resistant to oral health problems.

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.


Patient Testimonials

“Very clean and modern facility. Doctors and staff are helpful and attentive. Thank you!”

“Janine and Jenny in the front are so sweet! I am terrified of the dentist and had a wisdom tooth extraction, yet they listened and gave me so many strategies to calm down. They told me all the right things and never once made me feel crazy. The procedure was such a breeze and they were so right. From the surgeon to the assistant I can’t recommend this place enough to calm all your nerves and dental anxiety.”
