If you want to keep your teeth in great condition, professional teeth cleanings are essential. To keep your teeth healthy it requires a deep cleaning of the teeth to remove hidden tartar, plaque and bacteria that isn’t visible to the naked eye. If you can’t remember the last time you had a teeth cleaning, it has been too long.
Although your teeth may feel or appear clean, plaque and disease=causing bacteria build up between and under your gums. Even the best toothbrush will not get to those hard-to-reach areas. A professional teeth cleaning by a hygienist to remove unwanted plaque and bacteria is the only way your teeth will truly come clean. This is critical in preventing cavities, gingivitis and periodontal disease. Routine cleanings should be done at least every six months or more frequently.
