Yes it is important minimum twice in a year. If you have any habits like tobacco chewing or smoking go for 4 times in a year.
If they r already clean brush twice daily especially at if not get it done by a dentist first.
Dear Lybrate user, Cleaning of teeth by dentist (professional scaling) is important and beneficial for your teeth and gum health. There is no home remedy to replace this treatment. Please visit your dentist in case you need to get scaling done.
Yes teeth cleaning done by dentist is very much important. Through home remedies you cannot remove the calculus completely. There will be some calculus below the gum line which you cannot see. Dentist can thoroughly clean your teeth on all surfaces which you can't do by yourself. So please go for a dentist for cleaning.
