Discover The Importance Of Professionally Cleaned Teeth
These appointments are important because they are your first line of defense against decay and disease. Aside from home hygiene, cleanings and exams are what keep these problems at bay. The benefits of teeth cleaning can be far-reaching, helping you:
- Reduce and eliminate smile-dulling stains
- Potentially lower your risk of serious conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and strokes
- Prevent gum disease, which can lead to significant pain and even tooth loss
- Have fresh, clean breath – a mouth that isn’t clean will start to smell bad
Once the plaque on your enamel has hardened into tartar, you can’t remove it at home – even with brushing and flossing. Our hygienists can take care of it for you, though, and keep you smiling!
