To keep your smile at its healthiest, we recommend our patients regular dental cleanings and check-ups every six months.
Having your teeth professionally cleaned every 6 months allows the hygienist to use their special instruments to remove plaque from your teeth will help prevent decay and gum disease.
Getting an dental exam twice a year allows the dentist to check your teeth and look for any signs of decay or changes from your past visit.
Some people need to actually be seen more often than 6 months. If you have a fast rate of decay and tend to get cavities quickly or have been diagnosed with gum disease, it is important that you not only have dental cleaning twice a year but possibly more frequently to help prevent dental problems.
Most dental insurance companies pay for two cleanings and exams a year so you might as well take advantage of a benefit you already pay for.
