How often do I need to have my teeth cleaned?
We base your professional hygiene schedule off of your unique needs. For many patients, that means that every six months, we recommend a professional cleaning and exam. For others, especially those who suffer from periodontal disease or who are more prone to plaque and tartar, more frequent visits may be necessary to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
If you suffer from dry mouth, you might be more prone to gum disease. Dry mouth can occur with age or with certain medications – particularly if you are going through cancer treatments such as radiation or chemotherapy. We can develop a hygiene schedule that will support your oral health and protect your smile.
As patients age and lose dexterity, maintaining proper home oral hygiene can pose a problem. With regular, more frequent professional dental cleanings, we can help you avoid periodontal disease and decay.
