You might be wondering what the point of dental cleaning is. In fact, it is one of the most important services Dentistry Lahaina offers to their community. Regular Dental cleaning is the best preventive measure you could take to ensure the optimum health of your teeth and gums, and prevent significant restorative work being needed later down the track. Here’s why:

Dental cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar that have built up on your teeth between appointments.

Even if you practice a strict brushing and flossing routine, it is likely that you will still have plaque and tartar to remove. This is because your saliva contains calcium and other substances, which while protecting your teeth, also accumulate in hard to reach places and prove stubborn to remove.

Plaque and tartar form the optimum breeding ground for the bacteria that cause bad breath, gum disease and cavities. Regular dental cleaning will remove these deposits, keeping your mouth healthy and strong.

Not only will dental cleaning get rid of bacterium that is already there, but a clean and polish will smooth the surface of your teeth, making it harder for bacteria to stick to your teeth in the coming months.
