How often should I get my teeth professionally cleaned?

Return to FAQs

It is strongly encouraged to visit your dentist 2 times a year for an exam and cleaning, although some individuals may need their teeth professional cleaned more often depending on their overall oral health and hygiene. A dental hygienist is adept at reaching and cleaning those areas of your tooth that are hard to get to, which a brush cannot always do as thoroughly.  It is important to stay on track with your dental appointments to remove plaque and build up, which may lead to cavities, gum disease, or other afflictions.  Treating your smile to regular checkups will help avoid more serious conditions.
