Your Partner in Oral Health
Our dental hygienist can clean and polish your teeth at your biannual dental check-up. The hygienist also helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing their condition and recommending improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits.
Having a professional dental cleaning is the only way to eliminate tartar, a calcium deposit that forms on teeth and contributes to cavities.
Don’t Forget Basic Dental Hygiene
Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque and tartar from accumulating on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends visiting the dentist at least once every 6 months for a checkup and cleaning.
