Cleanings & Prevention


Routine dental cleanings are important in helping prevent gum disease. We recommend a dental exam and cleaning at least twice a year. Brushing and flossing helps prevent plaque from building up and hardening into tartar. Once you have tartar, you can only have it removed by a dental professional.
