Did you know that healthy teeth and gums are the cornerstone of a healthy mouth and a beautiful smile? That is why Forest Lane Dental is pleased to offer dental hygiene and teeth cleaning appointments to help you achieve the optimal oral health you desire. While regular home care is very important, it only focuses on areas of the teeth above the gum line (called “scaling”). A professional dental cleaning cleans your teeth not only above the gum line, but also the area below the gum (called “root planing”) that cannot be reached with home care. It is only through regular root planing and scaling combined that tartar, plaque and bacteria can be fully removed from hard-to-reach areas below the gumline. Regular professional hygiene appointments and cleanings can help keep your teeth and gums healthy from top to bottom! Forest Lane Dental looks forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health and wellness with regular dental hygiene and teeth cleaning appointments.
