Do I Need A Dental Cleaning If I Brush And Floss At Home?

dental cleanings San Luis Obispo

This blog post from Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy DDS in San Luis Obispo CA focuses on professional teeth cleanings. You might wonder if you need a professional dental cleaning if you already brush and floss every day at home.

The answer is yes: both are important, because they work together to maintain your dental health.

We encourage patients to practice preventative dentistry by:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Healthy diet – fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts
  • Regular dental cleanings
  • Regular checkups

Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of your daily oral care by removing the plaque and tarter that can accumulate, even when you brush and floss every day. When plaque hardens, it can only be removed with the special tools used by a hygienist.
