No and yes and yes: No, it is not necessary that you use mouthwash. Yes, it is in your best interests to be seen regularly by a dentist. No matter how well you think you clean your teeth, there are areas you cannot reach or see. In addition, many dental problems are painless until the teeth need to be extracted. And yes, the hygienist is trained to clean your teeth in a way that you cannot.
