Every 3-6 months, depending on your personal needs, you should receive a dental cleaning.
Dental cleanings are done by Registered Dental Hygienists, who specialize in removing any harmful plaque that you may not be able to reach and adequately clean with daily brushing and flossing.
Dental Hygienists have special tools to gently reach below the gum to remove any hardened bacteria in the form of plaque so that your oral health is at its best, always.
Without dental cleanings, a significant amount of bacteria and plaque may be resting on your teeth in areas that you cannot reach or below the gums, which over time, will result in tooth decay and damage.
A typical dental cleaning appointment lasts about 45 minutes to 1 hour and you will not need to be numbed unless requested!
Your dental hygienist’s passion is to make sure your smile is at its best health by giving you comprehensive, thorough cleanings every visit.
