Why Do I Need Professional Cleans?

When a dental professional cleans your teeth, they can achieve a much more thorough clean than you can achieve at home with your toothbrush and floss. In fact, once plaque hardens into tartar, it’s impossible for you to remove it without special tools. We remove the tartar and hard-to-reach plaque from your teeth and gums and also teach you how to improve your at-home brushing and flossing techniques. The exam portion of your visit is also essential. With regular exams, the dentist can keep an eye on your teeth and gums to catch any developing dental problems at an early stage. Dental issues caught early on can often be treated more conservatively, avoiding the need for complex dental procedures. 

How Often Should I Have My Teeth Cleaned

We generally recommend dental cleans and exams at least twice yearly. However, some people may require more frequent attention. We will work with you to arrange a customised clean and exam schedule.

Keeping your teeth and gums strong and healthy can help to prevent toothache and other dental emergencies.  However if you have a dental emergency such as a toothache, broken tooth or an infection our dentists are here to help you.
