Brushing and flossing just isn’t enough. That’s because harmful bacteria can build plaque and tartar on your teeth, especially right at or below your gumline. If untreated, this can irritate your gums and lead to gum disease which can eventually loosen your teeth — and make them fall out.

Thankfully, you can call our Birmingham, AL dental office today at 205-545-8007 for a dental cleaning. Dr. Perrigo is trained to use an ultrasonic scaler to gently but effectively remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. It can even clean below your gumline for gum disease treatment.
