Professional dental cleanings at Dr. Hessa clinic can help you maintain a healthy smile by removing plaque and tartar buildup on your teeth. While brushing your teeth at home contributes to a bright, attractive smile, professional teeth cleanings are required to keep your smile healthy. A professional teeth cleaning can provide you with fresher breath and a whiter, brighter smile, to name a few advantages. Removing plaque and tartar during a professional dental cleaning removes millions of bacteria that live and thrive in your mouth. By preventing cavities, dental cleanings can enhance your general dental health and lessen the need for future dental surgeries.
