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

dental cleanings Decatur

This blog post from Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL focuses on professional teeth cleanings. You might wonder if you need a professional 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:

  • 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 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 Decatur Smiles in Decatur AL our services include complete general dentistry. People from North Athens, East Mooresville, and South Cullman also come to our practice for dental implants, and much more. Schedule an appointment with us today!
