Teeth Cleaning Benefits
Tartar Removal – Teeth are prone to develop tartar and plaque which causes gingivitis and periodontal disease. Removing this buildup prevents more serious issues from occurring. Brushing, flossing and mouthwash are great for daily care. But, not all buildup gets removed. There are areas in the mouth that are unreachable and stubborn buildup can be impossible to remove at home. Therefore, a professional teeth cleaning is needed to assure your teeth and gums are free from tartar and plaque.
Brighter Teeth – Teeth discoloration can be from a lack of teeth cleaning, diet and personal habits. By removing surface stains with prophylaxis you may restore the brightness of your smile.
For effective dental care, schedule your cleaning once every 6 months. Some patients may need to schedule theirs every 3 to 4 months, if suffering from periodontitis. Please note that the effects of gum disease cannot be completely reversed. Routine dental cleaning is a preventative measure to reduce your risk of gum disease.
