Why do I need regular dental cleanings?
Regularly scheduled professional cleanings are critical for having healthy and beautiful teeth for maintaining good overall oral health. During your dental cleaning appointment, one of our friendly hygienists will carefully examine your mouth and perform the following procedures:
- Remove plaque: Plaque is a sticky film containing bacteria that attack tooth enamel and eventually cause cavities. The bacteria also produce toxins that inflame the gums, leading to periodontal disease. During your cleaning, we will remove any plaque to ensure that your teeth stay healthy and cavity-free.
- Remove tartar: Plaque left on the teeth over time hardens and becomes tartar. Tartar can cause gums to bleed, which may lead to periodontal disease. Our hygienist will carefully remove this harmful build-up so your teeth can shine.
- Polish teeth: This final step in a dental cleaning involves removing minor stains and any remaining plaque in order to make your teeth their whitest and brightest!
For most people, Mayfair Dentistry recommends a professional dental cleaning every six months to keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong.
