The old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” couldn’t be more accurate when it comes to routine dental cleanings. Patients require routine dental cleanings to prevent other diseases as well as to prevent tooth decay / tooth loss.
Dental cleanings help to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Too much buildup over time can lead to gum disease so it is best to keep with routine dental cleanings. Gum disease occurs when your immune system is fighting tartar buildup through inflamed and bleeding gums, which Premier Dental Arts works hard with you to help avoid!
Professional dental cleaning with Premier Dental Arts starts with the hygienist using tools to gently remove the excess tartar from your teeth both above and below where the gum meets the tooth. Then teeth are polished to ensure the brightest smile possible!
