ARIZONA SMILE CENTER: IN OFFICE TEETH WHITENING
Dental plaque is a deposit of bacteria that proliferate on the surfaces of the teeth and the mouth. When plaque and tartar are not adequately removed, their progression and buildup can result in tooth decay, gum diseases, and other oral-related problems. Keeping your teeth & gums clean is important, not just for oral hygiene but also for your overall health. Having a professional dental cleaning every six months is one of the best ways to prevent serious dental problems. A professional dental cleaning begins with an examination of your teeth.

A professional dental cleaning usually involves two stages: plaque and tartar scraping and polishing of the teeth. Scraping the plaque and tartar buildup from the teeth may not be the most pleasant part of a cleaning, but it is the best way to remove buildup which can result in gum disease and tooth decay.
Six months is the optimal time to find developing problems, and this schedule allows your dentist to follow any issues which seem to be developing and offer options for treatment.
