Preventive Cleanings

Why should I get a dental cleaning?

A woman having her teeth cleanedMost commonly known as a ‘cleaning,’ dental prophylaxis is a preventive procedure performed on people with good periodontal health to remove dental plaque, calculus, and stains at and above the gum line. This procedure is designed to help people maintain good health and reduce their risk of developing periodontal disease.
