Professional teeth cleaning not only helps to keep your teeth healthy, it keeps your body healthy as well. Dirty teeth are a breeding ground for bacteria and acids that cause plaque and lead to infections.It is easy to get your mouth and teeth clean and healthy, and keep it that way. A simple routine of brushing and cleaning between the teeth, good eating habits and regular dental check-ups can help prevent most dental problems. Although most people brush regularly, many don’t clean between their teeth and some people don’t have dental check-ups.

“Between the teeth cleaning keeps gums healthy and reduces plaque below the gum line. Brushing and flossing remove up to 70% of the plaque. Our dental hygienists are specially trained to remove any build-up on your teeth and treat any gum disease that has already appeared.
