Benefits of Anchorage Teeth Cleaning

Our Anchorage dental hygienist helps you keep your teeth clean by assessing the condition of your teeth. We can also recommend improvements to your daily teeth cleaning habits. Our Anchorage oral hygienist can also professionally clean and polish your teeth at your regular Anchorage dental check up. You should schedule a regular dental check up every six months.

Brushing and flossing at least twice each day can keep plaque from building up on your teeth and results in cleaner, healthier teeth. Plaque is soft material, a combination of bacteria and food residue. When you brush and floss, you remove plaque. But if you don’t remove the plaque fast enough, it absorbs minerals from your saliva and hardens into tartar. You can’t remove tartar at home and that’s why you need professional cleanings.

A Checkup from Your Anchorage Dentist

A regular visit to your local Anchorage dentist will help you stay on top of problems that can go unseen.
