What Is a Dental Cleaning?

Teeth cleaning is the process of removing plaque, tartar, and stains above, around, and just below the gumline. They can help prevent cavities, gum disease, and more serious oral health complications. As a preventative dental procedure, the yearly visits allow your dental hygienist the chance to look for problems early on before they become serious and negatively impact your oral health. Plus, they’ll polish your teeth to remove surface stains and leave your smile looking and feeling refreshed.
