Professional Teeth Cleaning
Professional teeth cleaning is intended to remove any excess scale (tartar, calcium deposits or calculus) and plaque (sticky film with bacteria) from your teeth, leaving them smooth, clean and polished.
Good oral hygiene is important not only for your smile, but for your overall health as well. Gum infections and periodontal disease is related to heart disease, stroke and preterm and/or low birth weight.
By following your dentist’s recommendation to get your teeth professionally cleaned every 3 to 6 months, you are reducing your chances of getting gum disease, thereby improving your oral health and your overall health as well.
