Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I get a dental cleaning?

Dental cleanings are recommended for most patients every 6 months, though we follow current American Dental Association guidelines and adjust recommendations based on your specific oral health needs.

Why should I get a dental exam?

About 1 in 4 American adults have cavities. These cavities will result in pain, infection, and tooth loss if left untreated. Approximately 42% of American adults have a severe form of gum disease, called periodontal disease, which irreversibly destroys the bone that holds in our teeth, leading to tooth loss.

These are completely preventable conditions. Early detection and intervention through regular cleanings and exams ensure you do not experience pain, infection, tooth loss, or other conditions associated with declining oral health.

Are dental cleanings uncomfortable?

Dental cleanings should always be comfortable. We use various techniques to ensure your comfort at all times.

What are the benefits of regular dental cleanings?

  • Remove dangerous bacterial buildup that has been associated with heart disease, preeclampsia and preterm births, respiratory diseases, certain types of cancers, and Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Freshen breath.
  • Brighten teeth by removing stains.
  • Screen for diseases including cavities, gum disease, and head and neck cancers.

Do I still need dental cleanings if I brush and floss regularly?

Yes. Even with diligent oral hygiene practices at home, professional dental cleanings are essential. Some areas of the mouth are impossible to clean with regular brushing and flossing alone.
