Have Questions About Your Dental Cleanings?

Most people know that they should schedule a dental cleaning and checkup at least once every six months. But not everyone sticks to that schedule consistently, which is a major reason why dental issues like cavities and gingivitis are so prevalent.

Since your dentist and hygienist are the only ones who can clean harmful tartar from your teeth and gum line, dental cleanings are important to an effective hygiene routine. If you have questions about your dental cleaning, or how to keep your smile healthy between visits, then we’ll be happy to answer them during your next visit!

Why isn’t brushing and flossing my teeth enough?

If you brush your teeth at least twice and floss at least once every day, then you might wonder why you need to also schedule visits with your dentist to do the same. At home, brushing and flossing your teeth help prevent the buildup of dental plaque, which is rich in harmful oral bacteria. However, when plaque calcifies on your teeth, it becomes tartar, and only your dentist or hygienist can remove it during your dental cleaning appointment.

When should I schedule my dental cleaning appointments?

The rule of thumb for dental cleanings is to schedule them no later than six months apart. Some patients may be able to go slightly longer if they have exceptional oral health, while others may need more frequent visits to improve their smiles. Your dentist will recommend an appropriate schedule of cleanings during your initial visit, which you should stick closely to in order to prevent
