Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the purpose of preventing cavities gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing, However dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits (tartar) not removed by routine brush cleaning.
Brushing twice a day and flossing once a day are the golden rules for good dental health. Daily brushing and flossing keep mouths healthy, however there are many other, problems that brushing and flossing alone cannot fix. For this reason, we recommend all our patients come in for a check-up and clean every six months, just to address any problems before they become serious.
