Many of us stay current with our semi-annual teeth cleanings, while others seem to conviently "forget" or "not have time" to visit the dentist for a cleaning. Oftentimes, there is a phobia associated with sitting in the dentists chair; however, maintaining and preserving your dental health is imperative to your overall health. Skipping a teeth cleaning here and there may seem harmless, yet overtime you can develop cavities, gum disease, and even lose teeth if you do not practice a strict and consistent dental health regimen.
Below is a great video on what you can expect during a teeth cleaning procedure. From when you arrive at our office to when you leave - a teeth cleaning will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
