How often should I go to the dentist/get dental cleanings?
The ADA standard of care is to get your teeth cleaned once every six months if your risk for cavities is low and you do not have other medical conditions that can create more bacteria and infection in your gums. Upon getting your dental exam it may be determined that you need more frequent dental visits to have the most optimum oral health. Such as if you have systemic health conditions that increase your chance of getting cavities and gum disease (a common disease that requires extra care is diabetes).
Once your risk level is determined we can explain and work with you to create a dental check-up schedule that best works for you and your health! Our goal to make sure that we not only take care of your teeth and gums, but your overall health. Research shows us that your oral health is heavily connected to the rest of your body. Getting proper dental care can improve your wellbeing in ways you might not expect!
Our highly skilled and educated team can help you to identify if there are any risk factors that might impact your oral or overall health. We look forward to taking care of you!
