Cleanings

Preventative maintenance for your mouth is something we cannot overstress. Most long-term problems with your mouth can me avoided by regular check-ups and cleanings.

We recommend getting your teeth cleaned 2x per year. Some patients with moderate periodontal disease (gum disease) should come in 3x per year.

The tartar (calculus) that is cleaned off during your visit is the primary cause of gum diseases. No tartar, no gum disease. No gum disease and you could end up keeping your teeth for life. This is our goal for our patients.
