Regular brushing and flossing is an important daily task in preventive oral health care, but it is only one preventive step. Having your teeth professionally cleaned by a hygienist plays a vital role in having and maintaining a healthy mouth. To completely eliminate plaque and tartar calcium deposits on the teeth, a professional dental cleaning is needed at least once, if not twice a year. At Boones Landing Dental Center, we use your time with the hygienist to remove harmful bacteria, evaluate the health of your gums, review brushing and flossing techniques, and discuss any additional preventive options that could elevate your oral health.
