I brush and floss my teeth. Why do i still need a dental cleaning?

Even with excellent hygiene habits, it is impossible to reach the smallest areas of your teeth with your toothbrush and floss alone. Over time, the missed plaque will harden into tartar, which can only be removed with a dental hygienist's tools. When tartar accumulates beneath the gumline, the end result is red, puffy, inflamed gums — the beginnings of periodontal diseae.
