Why do I need a professional cleaning?
A professional cleaning allows a trained dental hygienist to examine your mouth carefully and remove every last trace of plaque and tartar for your teeth. Think of it as your chance for a fresh start every six months.
Brushing and flossing at home is still important, of course. The more plaque you can remove at home, the less the hygienist has to remove and the quicker your cleaning will be! It’s nearly impossible, however, to completely remove all the plaque from your teeth with a brush and floss (especially plaque that hangs out beneath the gumline), and once it hardens into tartar, it can only be removed with professional tools.
Our hygienists provide thorough, gentle cleanings with great skill. Give us a call if it’s time for your cleaning – even if you’re overdue!
