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

dental cleanings Rockwall

This blog post from Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall TX focuses on professional dental 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 by:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Keeping a healthy diet of 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 Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall TX, our services include general and restorative dentistry.
