No matter how diligently you brush and floss your teeth, it is practically impossible to remove every trace of plaque, especially from the areas between your teeth or beneath your gumline. Over time, plaque can develop into tartar, which can't be removed with a toothbrush or dental floss. At a professional cleaning, dental hygienists use special tools along with their training to carefully remove the remaining plaque and tartar from your teeth so you can avoid cavities and gum disease. Additionally, these appointments give us an opportunity to check on the overall health of your mouth and watch for any potential problems that may be developing so they can be treated while they are still small.
