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

This post from Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson focuses on professional dental cleanings. You might wonder if you need a professional cleaning if you already brush and floss every day at home.

The answer is yes, you do. Both are vital, because they work together to maintain oral health.

You can maintain your dental health by:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Having a healthy diet – fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts
  • Regular dental cleanings
  • Regular checkups

Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of your daily care by removing the plaque and tarter that can accumulate in spite of your regular routine. In fact, when plaque hardens in tartar, it can only be removed with the special tools used by a hygienist.

At Shwarts Family Dentistry in Richardson we want all of our patients to enjoy clean teeth and healthy gums. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Call us to schedule your next cleaning and checkup today!
