It is recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA) that everyone should visit the dentist at least twice per year to ensure optimal oral health. Your dental team will consistently provide you with high-quality professional dental cleanings and thorough preventive exams.

The purpose of teeth cleaning is to rid the teeth of harmful build-up of plaque and stains that may prevent a healthy smile. During cleanings your dental professional will:

  • Remove tartar build-up on your teeth
  • Remove plaque
  • Perform teeth polishing to help remove light surface stains and prevent plaque from easily reattaching to your teeth

Your dental professional can help clean surfaces of your teeth that you may have missed during brushing and flossing. During your appointment, he or she will also:

  • Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
  • Check your bite and jaw for any problems
  • Evaluate your risk of tooth decay and gum or bone disease
  • Evaluate existing tooth restorations
  • Screen for oral cancer
  • Take dental x-rays if necessary

Regular professional dental cleanings and exams are essential for attaining a healthy mouth.
