If I brush and floss my teeth regularly, do I still need to see the dentist?

Even if you brush and floss regularly, you still need to see a dentist for regular check-ups. Not only can your dentist check for decay and other oral health conditions, they remove tartar, a hardened form of dental plaque that cannot be removed by brushing or flossing.
