Brushing and flossing are essential oral hygiene practices that help keep your teeth and gums healthy. However, they are not enough to fully keep harmful bacteria from building up on your teeth. At Prestige Dentistry, we recommend you visit us for a professional dental cleaning at least once every six months.
What Is Cleaning?
Dental cleaning or prophylaxis is a procedure that we perform to remove plaque and tartar deposits from your teeth. They can form and accumulate in hard-to-reach areas of your mouth, making them difficult to reach with brushing and flossing. The primary benefit of professional cleaning is that it helps reduce the risk of developing tooth decay and gum disease.
