That white hard gunk that builds up on your teeth is called plaque. It’s the leading cause of tooth decay! This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left unattended, can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing, flossing and dental cleanings.

Stop tooth loss
Gum disease, which starts with built-up plaque, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease advances the plaque moves further down the tooth. There it can destroy the supporting bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out, lead to bone removal, and other horrible compacations.To lower your chance chance of this happening to you can be greatly reduced through regular dental cleanings combined with good oral hygiene habits.
Brighten your smile
Drinking coffee, tea and wine or using tobacco can stain your teeth. A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? A whiter, brighter smile!
Freshen your breath
Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and oder-free. You can’t cover it all up with gum!
Boost your overall health
Studies have shown a connection between oral and general health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for some diseases, like heart disease and stroke. Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening, can be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam.
