Teeth Cleaning

A regular cleaning focuses on the surfaces of the teeth and between teeth above the gum line. During a regular cleaning, the teeth are also polished. A dental deep cleaning, or scaling and root planing, is needed in order to remove bacteria, calculus (tartar), and debris that has collected under the gum line.

The Importance of Regular Teeth Cleaning

Getting your teeth expertly cleaned at least twice a year can save you a lot of money on more advanced procedures in the future that could have been avoided with proper preventative care.
