Most dentists recommend a dental cleaning at least every six months. If you are wondering why dental cleanings are important and why your dentist recommends cleaning every six months, we have answers to those questions below.

You’ll Enjoy Health Benefits

Your oral health can affect your overall health, so it is important to maintain good oral hygiene. Visiting your dentist regularly for cleanings will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy so that you can avoid issues like gum disease, advanced cavities, and tooth loss. You should also enjoy better overall health with your healthy smile.

Regular Dental Cleanings Can Save You Money

In addition to removing plaque and polishing your teeth, dental cleanings also give your dentist a chance to note and address any concerns, which can help prevent serious tooth or gum issues down the line. 

The earlier you catch a developing cavity or other problem, the easier it is to address and the less money it will cost you in the long run. Regular cleanings can help you avoid costly dental treatments.

Keep Your Smile Bright and Healthy

Besides the health and money savings, you will enjoy a healthier, brighter smile if you visit your dentist’s office regularly for cleaning. Regular cleaning and polishing will make your teeth brighter, and you’ll enjoy a plaque-free smile.

In addition to regular cleanings, you’ll also need to continue maintaining your oral health at home with regular brushing and flossing.

What to Expect During Your Dental Cleaning

During a dental cleaning, we will remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and use a polishing tool to remove stains. Your dentist may also take x-rays of your teeth to check for developing cavities or other issues if you're also having an exam.

Teeth cleaning is a painless process. It can even be relaxing for some patients, and you will leave your dentist’s office with clean, sparkling teeth. 

At Randolph Dental Associates, we recommend a dental cleaning every six months. Seeing you every six months ensures we catch any developing issues in plenty of time and quickly address them. It also helps us keep plaque and tartar build-up to a minimum.
