Perfect Smile Doc Teeth Cleaning Services in Bronx, NY

Regular teeth cleanings are an essential part of any complete dental care routine. If you live in or around the Bronx, NY, Perfect Smile Doc would be pleased to provide top-of-the-line teeth cleaning services to you. Read on to learn more about why teeth cleanings are necessary and what they involve.

Why Bother with Teeth Cleanings?

If you brush and floss regularly, you might assume that scheduling a teeth cleaning is not something you need to do. However, nothing could be further from the truth!

While at-home cleanings are an important part of dental care, they are not always thorough enough to prevent plaque from building up in your mouth. Once plaque builds up, it will harden into tartar. Unfortunately, hardened tartar is not something you can remove on your own. 

The good news is that a standard teeth cleaning session at Perfect Smile Doc will remove tartar from your teeth before it causes tooth decay or any other significant issues. By keeping up with regular cleanings, you can ensure your mouth is healthy and tartar-free.
