Checkups & Cleanings

Professionally Cleaning Your Teeth

Every day, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums as a result of oral bacteria gathering together. When plaque calcifies into tartar, the only way to remove it and keep your smile safe from harmful bacteria is with help from your dentist or hygienist. During your routine cleaning appointments, we can carefully remove all traces of plaque and tartar from your teeth, then polish the crowns of your teeth to make it more difficult for plaque to stick to them. This removes the threat of excessive bacteria leading to tooth decay, gum disease, and more.

Checking for Signs of Trouble

In addition to cleaning your teeth and gums, regular checkup appointments also include thorough examinations during which your dentist will carefully examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissues. This examination includes looking for common signs of trouble, such as weak tooth enamel, red and inflamed gums, abnormalities in certain oral tissues, and more. When preventing an issue doesn’t work, the best way to protect your smile is to detect and treat it as early possible, which can only happen when you maintain a regular schedule of checkup appointments.
