Dental Cleanings and Exams
Regular dental cleaning is preventative care and recommended once or twice every year to help prevent more serious issues from arising. Your teeth are thoroughly cleaned during regular cleaning to remove any bacteria, plaque, and tartar through the use of specialized equipment. Once done, your teeth will then be polished to give them a nice shine.
Deep cleaning is performed to stop periodontal disease from advancing and is a great treatment for advanced gum diseases. This type of cleaning focuses on plaque that has formed into tartar on the tooth enamel, above and below the gum line. Deep cleanings are important, without them, the disease can run rampant and do serious damage to your gums and teeth.
