This blog post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ focuses on professional dental 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:
- Healthy diet of 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 if you brush and floss every day. When plaque hardens, it can only be removed with the special tools used by a hygienist.
