This blog post from The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston 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:
- Maintaining 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 tartar 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 The Gentle Art of Dentistry in Houston TX, our services include general and restorative dentistry. Patients from East Spring, West Cypress, and Klein also come to our office for dental implants. Contact us today!
