Why do I need my teeth cleaned?

You see a dental hygienist for the same reason you hire a plumber; professionals have the tools and knowledge to get a job done right. 

Daily brushing and flossing is not enough to maintain optimal oral health. You need a professional cleaning at least every 6 months. 

Even the most dedicated brushers have isolated areas of plaque build-up. Your hygienist has special instruments to remove plaque and tartar from the tight places you miss—spaces you didn't even notice! If this plaque isn't removed, it causes problems like bad breath, tooth decay (cavities), and gum disease.

A regular professional cleaning is worth it. Like a difficult home repair, I recommend you hire out. Lay back, relax, and leave the tough stuff to a professional.
