How Often Do I Need a Dental Cleaning?

July 17, 2020

Lady smiling with her toothbrushIn the midst of trying to stay home and social distance, we’ve probably put off some appointments, including the dentist.

At the very least, you should be visiting your dentist once a year. But, the recommendation to keep your dental health in best shape is to visit the dentist once every six months.

The Importance of Visiting The Dentist

You’re constantly told to floss and brush twice a day, but that isn’t enough for your dental health. Professional cleanings are extremely vital to your dental health. They remove plaque, yellow build-up, and calculus that our toothbrush can’t reach. Also during normal cleanings and exams, dentists are looking for signs of oral cancer, anemia, or other underly medical issues.

The bacteria that live within our body may not cause much trouble, but certain bacteria on the teeth can lead to cavities or gum disease. Gum disease is linked to cardiovascular disease, so catching this as early as possible can lower your risk of stroke and heart attack.

Twice A Year, For a Lifetime Of Health

Start making your six month dentist visit a priority! To ensure your dental health is in the best possible state, schedule an appointment! We are taking extra steps to keep you and our staff safe during this time.
