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

dental cleanings Daly City

This blog post from Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City focuses on professional teeth 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
  • Healthy diet – 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 Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, our services include complete general dentistry. People from San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay also come to our practice to improve their smiles with our cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!
