Your toothbrush and dental floss are vital to keeping your teeth clean to prevent oral health complications, like tooth decay and gum disease. However, they are only half of the care you need. Even with the best oral hygiene habits, there are still areas in your mouth that you cannot clean at home, which is why you need professional teeth cleaning every six months. While the semi-annual cleanings are recommended by the American Dental Association and your insurance company, there may come a time when you require more frequent visits.
