Professional dental cleaning by a dentists or certified dental hygienist aims to remove plaque, tarter and stains that have accumulated on the teeth. Dentists recommend having your teeth cleaned every 6-12 months for preventative measures. This will decrease the chance of getting periodontal disease.
Dr. Jay Elbrecht and his team at Advanced Dental Care of Anderson will help remove the plaque that contains millions of bacteria. This bacteria found in plaque is what causes gum disease and tooth decay if not removed by daily brushing and flossing, as well as routine trips to the dentist.
