How Often Should You Schedule Your Teeth Cleanings?

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends dental appointments at intervals determined by a dentist to maintain your oral health. People with healthy teeth and gums typically require a routine dental exam and cleaning twice a year, while those with gum disease or are prone to developing tooth decay may require more frequent care.

Dental Cleanings For A Healthier You

Professional cleanings eliminate plaque and tartar buildup, which helps keep cavities and gum (periodontal) disease at bay. You'll also get rid of bacteria in the hard-to-reach areas, which helps prevent bad breath (halitosis).

Professional cleanings, coupled with meticulous oral hygiene practices, can reverse the early stage of gum (periodontal) disease known as gingivitis. If left untreated, the condition can progress and damage the bone and tissue supporting the teeth, which can potentially lead to tooth loss. Periodontal disease has also been linked to health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more. Keeping up with your dental cleanings not only results in a brighter smile but also contributes to a healthier you.

What Happens During Your Dental Cleaning Appointment?

Our dental hygienist will start by removing plaque and tartar from around your gum line and in between your teeth with a dental instrument called a scaler. Next is polishing your teeth with a gritty toothpaste and flossing to remove any leftover plaque or tartar deposits. We may recommend a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth and help protect them from decay.

Your visit will also include an examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth to ensure your smile is healthy and free of disease. Dr. Wilstead will recommend preventive or restorative treatments if needed.
