Dental cleanings are extremely important for your smile and oral health. In fact, they are vital. This is because they can help you in a myriad of ways. In fact, they can:

Deeply clean your teeth: The cleaning treatment involved at your appointment is the only treatment that can remove plaque and tartar from your smile, which are harmful substances that promote and create gum disease. If you keep up with your appointments, you’ll have a greater chance of saving your smile and oral health by preventing dangerous dental issues.

Polish your smile: Once your teeth are all clean, our dental team can remove the surface stains on your teeth and give you a whiter and more attractive smile.

Detect and fix dental issues: During your appointment, our dental team will examine your smile and look for any dental issues you might have, like tooth decay, gum disease, and enamel erosion. We’ll also look for signs of oral cancer. If any dental issues are spotted, Dr. Christopher Lillo will explain your treatment options.
