Dental practitioners recommended that you brush your teeth twice a day and floss regularly. If you do, you may be wondering whether these teeth cleaning habits are enough to keep you safe from plaque deposits and cavities and maintain your dental health.
The truth is that while brushing and flossing help prevent dental problems, plaque or tartar buildup may still develop, especially in the areas that are difficult to reach.

Regular dental cleanings are one of the best ways to prevent cavities and gum diseases.
A dental hygienist or a dentist using professional dental cleaning tools can reach all those hard-to-get areas and clean your teeth thoroughly.
At the office of Dr. Robin Mells, DDS, in San Jose, California, we provide quick and painless dental cleanings using advanced dental cleaning tools and procedures like tooth scaling, tooth polishing, and debridement to loosen and remove any unwanted deposits from your teeth.
Before the actual cleaning, we will examine your entire mouth. Using a small mirror, we will check for any signs of gingivitis or other potential concerns.
During the dental cleaning process, all the plaque and tatar in between your teeth and around the gum line will be removed using a scaler.
When your teeth are plaque and tartar-free, the next step is using a professional cleaning toothpaste and a high-powered electric brush for deep cleaning.
The last step is the fluoride treatment, which will strengthen your teeth and prevent bacteria formation.
Dental cleaning is a 100% safe and painless procedure. Along with a daily at-home cleaning routine that includes brushing and flossing, a professional cleaning twice a year from an expert dentist can do wonders for your dental health.
