Healthy teeth and gums are the foundation of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile! That is why River Harmony Dental is pleased to offer professional cleanings and checks-ups to help you achieve optimal oral health. Routine maintenance, while extremely important, only focuses on areas of the teeth above the gum line (called scaling). A professional cleaning can clean your teeth above the gum line, but also below the gum line as well (called root planing). It is only through regular scaling AND root planing, that tarter, plaque and bacteria toxins can be removed from those hard-to-reach areas below the gum line that home maintenance cannot reach. Regular professional cleanings can keep your gums healthy from top to bottom!
