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

dental cleanings White Plains

This blog post from The Dental Design Center in White Plains 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 with:

  • 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 if you brush and floss every day. When plaque hardens, it can only be removed with the special tools used by a hygienist.

At The Dental Design Center in White Plains our services include complete restorative dentistry. People from Scarsdale, Westchester County, and New Castle know they can trust their smiles to our cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!
