How Often Should I Schedule a Dental Cleaning?

In general, you should schedule a professional dental cleaning every six months. That way, you can prevent serious oral health problems from developing. If you need to come to the office more often than that, we will let you know. 

What Happens During a Dental Cleaning?

Several important tasks will occur when you visit our office for your dental cleaning. They include:

  • We will always start by thoroughly brushing your teeth.
  • Then, our professional team will floss in between each tooth.
  • We will apply fluoride treatments to provide your teeth with some additional protection.
  • We will remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth.
  • Dr. Nicholas Garcia will inspect your teeth thoroughly to identify any potential acute oral health issues that need to be addressed.

Make sure you schedule your next cleaning with our team! 

How Does a Professional Cleaning Prevent Gingivitis and Tooth Decay?

Even though you brush and floss your teeth at home, there are some issues that you cannot address on your own. Eventually, plaque and tartar will start to build up on the surfaces of your teeth, and if you do not remove it, it can lead to significant oral health problems. Our team has the training and experience necessary to remove plaque and tartar before it damages your oral health.
