I brush my teeth every day. Why do I need a cleaning?
First of all, great job! Brushing and flossing every day is a crucial first step when it comes to protecting your oral health and preventing decay and gum disease.
Even with the best brushing habits, however, it’s still easy to miss areas where plaque can accumulate, especially if you have teeth that are crooked, twisted, or crowded together. Everyone’s teeth naturally have little ridges and other variations that can provide a place for bacteria and plaque to cling to.
Plus, it’s easy for bacteria and plaque to hide just beneath your gumline in areas where your toothbrush and dental floss simply can’t reach. Allowing plaque to remain in these areas for too long increases your chances of developing cavities or periodontal disease significantly.
Our hygienists are highly trained and skilled at removing this plaque and tartar from the areas where home tools can’t. They use their training and specialized instruments to provide thorough-yet-gentle cleanings so you can have a fresh start.
