Professional Teeth Cleaning
general dentist, Dental Cleaning
During your day, saliva is constantly circulating in your mouth. In doing so, it also circulates calcium and other substances that helps protect and strengthen your teeth. The problem is that over time, those same substances can cause calcium deposits that can make and make your teeth look spotted. This build up, called tartar, over time becomes the perfect environment for bacteria to grow next to your gums.
Sometimes tartar can look brown or black, and in those cases, people are more likely to notice them and know they have a problem. But sometimes, tartar can also be tooth colored and not visible to you at all, and in those cases, you really need a dentist with specialized tools and training in order to clean your teeth and remove the plaque and tartar build up.
Active Dental, along with the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), recommend that you get your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year in addition to your daily hygiene habits of brushing and flossing. Maintaining a healthy mouth is paramount to your overall health.
