  • Why is regular teeth cleaning important?

    Regular teeth cleaning is crucial because it helps remove plaque and tartar buildup that brushing and flossing alone cannot eliminate. This prevents tooth decay and gum disease, keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

    Professional cleanings also give your dentist the opportunity to spot and address any potential dental issues early on.


  • How often should you get dental checkups?

    Dental checkups are ideally performed every six months. During your visit, your doctor will take a comprehensive health history to understand your past and current health. Subsequent checkups will monitor any changes in your oral health and ensure your teeth and gums remain in excellent condition.

    The American Dental Association and most dentists recommend biannual visits because regular maintenance and cleanings are essential for keeping teeth and gums healthy.

    For most people, six months is an appropriate interval to prevent tartar and stains from building up to the point where another cleaning is necessary. However, individuals with a history of periodontitis may need maintenance visits every 3-4 months to effectively manage their oral health.

  • Why are brushing and flossing important?

    Brushing and flossing are essential daily practices for maintaining oral health. Brushing twice a day removes food particles and plaque from the surfaces of your teeth, while flossing cleans between the teeth and along the gum line where a toothbrush cannot reach. Together, these habits help prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath, contributing to overall oral hygiene.
