What is teeth cleaning?

A professional teeth cleaning is one of the most basic yet essential services we offer. We recommend that you visit our office once every six months for a professional dental cleaning, which can help to keep your smile healthy. During your teeth cleaning in Ann Arbor, Michigan, our dentist and hygienists will:

  • Remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. When allowed to accumulate on the teeth, plaque and tartar may lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease.
  • Floss your teeth, which helps to remove plaque from spaces between your teeth.
  • Polish your teeth to give your smile a bright, healthy shine. This can help to remove surface stains from the teeth.
  • Check your smile for signs of dental problems like decay, gum disease, and other damaging conditions.

If needed, Dr. Alberto A. Herrero will recommend further treatment that is needed to improve your oral health. These routine dental visits are important in ensuring that your smile stays healthy and that our team detects any dental problems as soon as possible. If it has been longer than six months since you last visited the dentist, we encourage you to contact our office today to set up your next appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
