Teeth & Tooth Cleaning in Flint, MI
Visiting the dentist for your regular cleanings and exams is essential to maintaining optimal oral health. In most cases, our Flint, Michigan dentists and hygienists will recommend visiting our office once every six months for your cleanings. Those who have periodontal (gum) disease may need to have professional cleanings more frequently. During your cleanings at our office, our dentist or hygienist will:
- Remove plaque to prevent it from developing into calculus (tartar)
- Remove calculus to prevent gingivitis and gum disease
- Polish the teeth for the “dentist clean” feeling
When you have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis, your risk for tooth decay and gum disease is reduced. Remember that only a dental professional can thoroughly remove the plaque and calculus stuck on the teeth and gums. If you haven’t been to the dentist in over six months, we invite you to contact Heritage Comfort Dental to schedule your visit today. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and radiant new smile.
