Willow Tree Dental in Mansfield, TX offers many convenient appointments for dental cleanings. A routine dental cleaning is a preventive treatment performed on healthy gums and teeth usually every 3 to 6 months depending upon each individual patient’s risk and needs. It involves removing dental plaque off the surfaces of teeth to create a smooth and polished surface. Plaque is a product of bacteria that builds up on teeth over time. If left unremoved and allowed to harden, plaque can turn into tartar (calculus).
Prevention will always be the most cost-effective way to maintain a healthy mouth. Routine check-up exams, cleanings and when indicated x-rays and topical fluoride as well as proper oral hygiene instructions, can help set a patient up for a lifetime of optimal oral health.
