In addition to oral hygiene, dental cleanings are extremely important and beneficial for your smile. It’s strongly recommended that you attend your cleanings every six months. If you do, your smile will remain in tip-top shape. There are many reasons why cleanings are so beneficial for your smile, and three of those reasons are:

They prevent cavities
Dental cleanings successfully prevent cavities. This is because our team will deeply clean each tooth in your smile and will eliminate the harmful substances that cling to your chompers and create dental issues. Another way cleanings prevent cavities is with a fluoride treatment. Our team will give you the fluoride treatment you need to strengthen and nourish your smile.

They prevent tooth loss
Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in the world today. This is a serious and dangerous disease that develops when the plaque on your teeth continues to grow and irritate and infect your teeth, gums, and underlying bone. Your dental cleanings will completely remove the plaque from your smile and will eliminate your chances of developing the disease.

They help brighten your smile
During your appointment, our team will polish your smile and lift any tooth stains that are present. This will give you the bright and shiny smile you are looking for.

Dental cleanings can also save you money in the future by preventing major dental issues and they can also boost your overall health.
