That’s great news! Keep up the good work!
Even with the best brushing habits, it’s practically impossible to completely remove all the plaque from your teeth. There are several areas, especially between your teeth and along the gumline, that are difficult to reach with a toothbrush and dental floss. Over time, the plaque in these areas will harden into tartar, which can only be removed with professional instruments. If the tartar is not removed, the result will be cavities and gum disease.
Additionally, cleanings are a great time to touch base with your hygienist about your home care routine and discuss any concerns you might have.
