When it comes to achieving and maintaining a healthy beautiful smile, brushing and flossing your teeth faithfully isn’t enough. It is also essential to have your teeth professional cleaned on a regular basis.

After a thorough cleaning, your teeth will feel smooth and squeaky-clean, and they will probably look a lot brighter too. But professional teeth cleanings aren’t done for looks alone, they are also the key to great oral health.

Over time, your teeth tend to build up a layer of plaque (a sticky, bacteria-rich film) and hard deposits (called tartar, or calculus) that is extremely difficult to remove without special tools. When left untreated, it can lead to inflammation and infection of your gums, tooth loss, and possible diseases that can affect your overall health. Luckily, professional teeth cleanings are specifically designed to remove both plaque and deposits so that you can avoid any oral and overall health issues. Furthermore, teeth cleanings are tailored to your particular needs to guarantee the healthiest smile of your life.

Achieve and maintain optimal oral health by visiting your dentist twice a year for professional teeth cleanings. Contact our experienced dental team for more information or to schedule your teeth cleaning today.
