Periodontal Deep Cleaning in Great Falls, VA
Keeping your teeth clean and healthy is the easiest way to prevent future gum and tooth problems. Routine check ups with our hygienists can keep your health on track.
How do I keep my teeth healthy?
Being proactive is the key to a healthy smile and avoiding serious dental procedures. Brushing and flossing help get rid of germs and bacteria, but aren’t enough to protect your smile. No matter how great your flossing and brushing are, plaque and tartar buildup still occur.
Why do I need preventative dentistry?
Over time, plaque builds up on your teeth. Brushing and flossing help remove bits of food, germs and bacteria. Removing plaque requires more specialized tools and extra care. If plaque buildup is not removed, it exposes your smile to all sorts of issues, such as:
- Tooth Decay
- Bad Breath
- Bone Loss
- Tooth Loss
- Gum Disease
Be proactive about your oral health; schedule a cleaning with us now.
