Dental Exams & Cleanings

Regular visits for a teeth cleaning and a dental exam are crucial for preventing oral problems. These appointments also help maintain the health of your teeth and gums.

How Often Should You Get a Dental Exam and Cleaning?

You should have your teeth examined and professionally cleaned at least twice a year or every six months. Depending on the state of your oral health, your dentist or hygienist may recommend coming in more often. It’s common for patients with issues like gum disease to need more frequent dental visits.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

During your examination, your hygienist will take an x-ray to check for decay, tumors, cysts, or other issues. They may also perform an oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, and an examination for any existing restorations. During the cleaning portion, your hygienist will use professional tools to remove plaque, tartar, and other stains from your teeth.

Afterward, you and your dentist will discuss your oral hygiene and dietary habits. They may make suggestions as needed to improve your health.

The Importance of Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings

These appointments are about more than just cleaning your teeth. A full-service dental exam and cleaning play an important part in several factors, including:

  • Preventing gum disease
  • Reducing your risk of tooth loss and dental problems
  • Reducing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes
  • Keeping your breath fresh
  • Saving money
