Proper professional dental cleanings are recommended at least every six months to promote excellent oral hygiene care and prevent plaque growth and development. When plaque starts to build up, tooth decay and gum diseases can develop. During dental cleanings, dental hygienists remove plaque as well as polish your teeth, potentially the hygienist may take diagnostic images. The doctor will examine your teeth and gums and review any images. With the aid of the dentist’s diagnosis, additional cleanings or other treatments may be suggested.
