How often should I have my teeth cleaned by a dentist?
Regular dental cleaning is an essential aspect of oral hygiene that helps keep your teeth and gums healthy. As a dentist, I strongly recommend that my patients have their teeth cleaned every six months to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar.
Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the surface of your teeth and gums. If not removed, plaque can harden into tartar, which can only be removed by a dental professional. Tartar buildup can lead to various oral health problems such as gum disease, cavities, and bad breath.
During a regular cleaning appointment, one of our dental hygienists will thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. This will help to prevent gum disease and tooth decay, and will also leave your mouth feeling clean and refreshed.
In addition to plaque and tartar removal, our hygienists will also polish your teeth to remove any surface stains and give you a bright and healthy smile. They will also check for any signs of oral health problems such as cavities, gum disease, and oral cancer, and make recommendations for treatment if needed.
Regular dental cleanings are an important part of maintaining good oral health, and can help prevent serious oral health problems from developing. If you have any questions or concerns about dental cleanings, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to help and ensure that you have a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come.
In conclusion, regular dental cleanings are a simple and effective way to maintain good oral health and prevent serious oral health problems from developing. If you haven’t had a dental cleaning in the past six months, I encourage you to schedule an appointment with us today. Your smile will thank you!
