Are Professional Dental Cleanings Really Necessary?

Most of our patients here at our Brewster dental practice wonder whether or not they still need professional dental cleaning when they’re already extra diligent in taking care of their teeth at home. Some of these patients have even shared that they use specially formulated toothpastes to give those pearly whites a bit of polish.

So, are professional dental cleanings really necessary? Yes of course!

The truth is that brushing and flossing are actually not enough in removing the buildup of both plaque and tartar.  The former is formed by acid-producing bacteria which in turn are destructive to your oral health while the latter is a result of too much plaque which in turn can mineralize into a hard substance. The  only way to get rid of both is through professional dental cleanings done by a dentist or a dental hygienist.

In addition, our dental team are equipped with the most advanced tools in the industry that will make sure that your teeth are cleaned and polished thoroughly. By having your pearly whites professionally cleaned on a regular basis,  you also reduce your chances of acquiring gum disease as both plaque and tartar can lead to severe gum problems if left untreated.

Healthier Mouth, Healthier Body!

At the Family Dental Group practice, our main priority is to make professional dental cleanings pain-free and comfortable as much as possible.  After all, a healthy mouth translates to excellent overall health.
