About Dental Cleanings

Plaque and tartar buildup on teeth and around gums have harmful bacteria that can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and bad breath. A cleaning done by a professional is crucial to decreasing the risk of periodontal disease. Remember to visit your hygienist about every six to twelve months!
