Create a solid foundation for your oral hygiene with regular dental cleanings and check-ups!
Dental cleanings are the backbone of a good oral health regime. A dental cleaning gives the dentist and hygienist a chance to assess a patient’s oral health and help them make informed and specific choices in maintaining good oral hygiene routines. A dental cleaning includes a check-up where you will be screened for periodontics (gum disease), cavities, and any anomalies.
How often should you get a dental cleaning?
A dental cleaning is recommended every six months, unless otherwise instructed from a medical or dental professional. In some cases such as heart problems or severe periodontitis more frequent dental cleanings may be necessary. Additionally brushing twice a day and flossing daily will help your smile stay looking good!
