Regular cleanings prevent decay and preserve the health of the gums, other supporting structures, and teeth. Good oral hygiene is important to prevent a variety of dental and medical complications.

Recent research has shown that the bacteria present in gum disease are also found in the plaques that clog the arteries of patients suffering from heart disease. We now know that these bacteria can be transferred from the mouth to the bloodstream. Therefore, a good professional teeth cleaning is essential not only for the health of your teeth, but also for your general well-being.

In order to best maintain your oral health and prevent the spread of harmful bacteria from the mouth to the rest of the body, it is important that patients come in for an exam and thorough teeth cleaning every 6 months.
