The Most Popular general dentistry procedure
Most dentist recommend that your teeth be professionally cleaned at least twice a year, if not more.
As such, teeth cleaning is one of the general dentistry procedures that we do the most. The reason getting your teeth cleaned is so important is because even if you are diligent with brushing your teeth and flossing, oftentimes, plague – food debris, saliva that sticks to your gums and teeth and bacteria – will form in or around your gums, potentially causing very painful, and very expensive, dental diseases down the road.
The plague that forms will lead to tooth decay and could also turn into tartar if not removed promptly.
Even though cleaning are considered the “easiest” of all the general dentistry procedure, it is still highly recommended that you do one at least twice a year, if not more.
