We know (or hope!) that you clean your teeth regularly at home, however nothing can replace the importance, or effectiveness, of a professional clean.
A professional clean removes plaque and tartar that you simply can’t remove when brushing at home. This then helps prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. Additionally, an appointment to clean your teeth generally includes tooth scaling, polishing, followed by a fluoride treatment.
We generally recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year.
