1) How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

You should make an appointment every six months for a preventative dental checkup. These appointments allow our team to review your dental history and ensure your teeth and gums are healthy while removing buildup and tartar from your mouth. Not only that, regular cleanings will keep your smile white and bright, in addition to preventing serious dental issues from arising.

2) I’m not having any oral problems, do I still need to go to the dentist regularly?

Yes! Just because you are not experiencing oral problems, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t visit your dentist twice a year. When it comes to dental health, it’s important to be proactive by having dental X-rays, tartar removal, gum tissue evaluation, and more. Taking these steps can help prevent problems like gum disease in the future.

3) How Can I Maintain My Oral Health Between Cleanings?

Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Once in the morning, once at night, and preferably one time in between. Set a timer to ensure you are brushing your teeth for two minutes. In addition, don’t forget to floss once a day. When it comes to food selection, be conscious of sugary foods and drinks you are consuming, as these can increase the risk of tooth decay.
