As you may know, it’s important for you to see your dentist regularly—even if you don’t enjoy visiting the dentist. Regular professional dental cleanings are vital in the fight to prevent tooth decay and gum disease, which can lead to a number of health issues.

There are different types of professional dental cleanings that can be used to match a number of situations. For instance, a normal cleaning is referred to as a preventative cleaning. This type of cleaning is used to thoroughly clean your teeth and your gums. Conversely, if you have more serious issues—such as gum disease—our dentist may need to remove hardened plaque and tartar. You may also need a deep cleaning if you have a more advanced case of gum disease. Fortunately, both of these cleanings can be extremely useful for reversing gum disease.

A professional dental cleaning will also help you achieve a brighter smile and can ultimately save you money. A cleaning will you keep your teeth healthy, prevent cavities, and even help you avoid root canals. During your cleaning, our dentist will be able to identify issues before they get serious—which will allow us to prevent problems before they can take hold.
