Professional dental cleanings are an important part of your regular dental checkups, which you should schedule with Today’s Dental every six months.
During the cleaning portion of the exam, your hygienist will remove plaque, tartar and stains. He or she will also apply fluoride and polish your teeth, as well as educate you about proper home care and the best ways to maintain your oral health. A dental cleaning will have you leaving our office feeling refreshed and happy with your clean, beautiful smile.
