You’re born with your teeth, not tooth decay, cavities or bad breath. Avoid the expense and embarrassment of these with a dental exam and thorough cleaning.
Plaque and calculus build up around your gums over time and lead to bleeding gums, tooth decay, and bad breath, and sometimes even losing your teeth! Regular exams and teeth cleanings prevent these from happening so you can live with a healthy, fresh mouth!
It may have been a while since your teeth and gums got some care. Your gums seem to be bleeding when you floss or brush, and you’ve started to notice your breath is not what is should be.

We use a dental laser that involves killing bacteria in the gums, which prevents inflammation and bleeding with a low power laser that doesn’t require anesthesia.
Plaque and tartar build up in and around and underneath your gum line if you let it. And some patients need cleanings more often. Deep cleanings help remove that hard or soft plaque and let the gums heal in the process – stopping
