I brush and floss my teeth daily. Why do I need a professional cleaning?

Good hygiene habits are very important, and brushing and flossing every day as directed by Dr. Mark and Dr. Ko will go a long way toward preventing cavities and gum disease. Unfortunately, even the most diligent brushing and flossing cannot remove every bit of plaque and tartar like a professional cleaning can. Even with excellent hygiene habits, plaque can still build up in the hard-to-reach areas between the teeth and just beneath the gum line. Over time, even small plaque and tartar deposits can cause cavities and periodontal disease to develop.
