Most patients visit a dentist for an exam and cleaning. These routine visits allow us to keep track of your oral health and stay on top of any issues that may arise between appointments. While you should still regularly brush and floss your teeth, our cleanings can also help reduce the risk of developing tooth decay. If left untreated, tooth decay may lead to cavities, which can be treated with dental fillings, or in more serious cases, a root canal treatment.
What Happens During Cleanings?
Our dental cleanings professionally and thoroughly remove plaque and tartar build-up from the surfaces of your teeth. This is important because you cannot remove tartar with a toothbrush or floss. You need a dentist to remove it or else it will stay on your teeth and allow oral bacteria to produce substances that promote tooth decay. Our cleanings can help remove excessive oral bacteria and keep your teeth healthy.
