Although brushing and flossing is a part of your daily routine at home, a professional dental cleaning is also highly recommended. This prevents problems such as tooth decay and bad breath and helps you maintain a healthy smile. At a routine professional cleaning, Dr. Barzilay's team of dental hygienists gently removes plaque and tartar buildup that cannot be removed with just a toothbrush. If you feel any sensitivity, the dental hygienist may tell you why and give you tips to add to your daily cleaning routine to prevent it. Dr. Barzilay or a dental hygienist may also update you on proper cleaning techniques to do at home and give you the opportunity to ask any questions about brushing or flossing that you may have.
