Teeth Cleaning Procedures
Why Regular Dental Visits are Important
Regular and periodic teeth cleanings will protect teeth from plaque and Calculus (tartar). Left uncleaned and untreated, these seemingly small issues can lead to preventable periodontal (gum) disease. Keeping your mouth, tongue, gums, and teeth clean is as simple as brushing, flossing, and rinsing twice daily. In addition to these daily habits, teeth should be cleaned by a dentist at least semi-annually.
Such cleanings and treatment of teeth and mouth are recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA). Your chance of healthy oral hygiene dramatically increases when you regularly visit a dentist.
