Professional Cleanings At Great Northern Dental Care

Why Are Professional Cleanings So Important?

The top two reasons adults lose teeth are cavities and gum disease. Even the best daily brushing and flossing won’t get rid of every bit of plaque between teeth and below the gum line. When the plaque hardens, it turns into tartar, which is difficult to remove without professional care. Professional cleanings get rid of tartar above and below the gum line, keeping your teeth and gums on track to stay healthy.

How Often Should I Come In For Cleanings?

In general, patients should schedule basic cleaning appointments twice a year, but it’s important to talk to Dr. Jarvis about your individual dental health needs. Patients with risk factors for developing gum disease may need more frequent cleanings and may require as many as four cleanings per year to fight back against oral health difficulties.
