Top Five List for Dental Cleansing

  • Strong Teeth. Teeth accumulate plaque and tartar, which lead to tooth decay. Conscientious cleanings remove this built up plaque and tartar, leaving teeth clean and white.
  • Healthy Gums. Plaque and tartar build up on the back surfaces of the teeth as well as the front surfaces. Food collects between the teeth and along the gumline. Regular cleanings removes the material that brushing and flossing at home (you do floss, don’t you?) cannot.
  • Bright Smiles. Regular cleanings remove the bacteria and food debris that can cause tooth decay. The process also polishes the surface enamel of teeth making them bright and clean looking. Brighter, healthier teeth are happy to be shown off in bigger, more confident smiles.
  • Clean Breath. Bad breath is caused by bacteria in the mouth that feed on food debris on teeth. Regular teeth cleaning removes the fuel that bacteria need to produce the gasses that cause bad breath. Clean air in; clean air out.
  • Good Attention. Dr. Levey schedules teeth cleaning appointments for their patients that fit their schedule and their needs; an appointment every three-to-six months is typical. They know it is important for teeth to be maintained, cleaned, and examined conscientiously to ensure their patients’ continued good health.
