How Often Do I Need Dental Checkups? 

According to the American Dental Association, patients should schedule appointments for dental exams and teeth cleanings every six months. Because your needs are different from anyone else’s, our dentists customize the frequency of your preventive appointments. 

If you have a history of good oral health and no cavities or gum disease, every six months is the perfect interval. However, patients who commonly experience these conditions may need three or even four visits a year to maintain their oral health.

During your comprehensive examination, we look at each tooth, check your gums, and ensure that all your dental work is in good condition. Every check-up also includes a head and neck exam and an oral cancer screening. 

What Happens During a Teeth Cleaning?

Brushing and flossing at home removes a lot of plaque buildup, and your professional cleanings complete the job your toothbrush can't.

Checking your gums also allows our hygienist to look for early signs of gingivitis. Even if you don’t notice symptoms like swollen or bleeding gums, periodontal disease can damage your smile all the same.
