I brush and floss. Why do I need cleanings?

Even individuals with impeccable oral hygiene are still not immune to issues like decay and gum disease. Every day, oral bacteria accumulate. Brushing and flossing at home is enough to keep these bacteria at bay for some time. But after a few months, a professional cleaning is necessary to address the issue. Your dental hygienist can remove plaque and tartar in hard-to-reach areas, keeping your bacterial levels healthy.
