In order to have a healthy smile it is important to brush and floss daily. Even with excellent home care it is important to have a professional teeth cleaning and exam at least twice a year. We will perform a physical examination of your gums and teeth to assess the current state of your oral health and hygiene. Our hygienists will remove plaque and tartar which can cause decay and gum disease, polish your teeth and remove stains and apply fluoride treatment if indicated. During the cleaning we will discuss with you which cleaning techniques are working and what may need more attention.
