The Importance of Professional Teeth Cleanings

Many patients ask us if they have to receive a professional teeth cleaning if they do a good job brushing and flossing their teeth at home. The answer is yes. Even those patients who are very diligent in sticking to their oral health care routines may not remove every bit of plaque buildup. In fact, teeth have crevices and grooves that are too small for even a single toothbrush bristle to access. These areas need to be cleaned professionally. Plaque, the sticky byproduct of oral bacteria, clings to teeth following meals. When the plaque isn’t removed within 12 hours, it can begin to harden into tartar sometimes called calculus. Patients are not able to remove tartar at home, so professional teeth cleanings are necessary to remove any calculus. Finally, these professional cleanings also give our team members the opportunity to examine your smiles for signs of developing oral health concerns and partner with you to prevent these issues.
