Dental exams should take place every six months, or twice a year. These visits can occur more or less frequently depending on your overall oral health, but generally, it’s recommended to visit your dentist at that cadence.
At a typical dental exam, our team will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove any surface stains and debris that can’t be removed with brushing alone. We will also check for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other, more serious, ailments. You may also receive an X-ray to provide a more detailed summary of your oral health.
We will ask you questions about your current dental routine, such as how often you brush and floss your teeth. With this information, we will recommend proper dental care and provide suggestions on how to improve your habits to promote optimal oral health.
The best way to take care of your teeth between cleanings is to brush your teeth twice a day, floss once a day, and incorporate a mouthwash with fluoride into your dental routine. This will help prevent cavities and reduce the amount of plaque and tartar that can build up between cleanings.
Additionally, avoid sugary foods, acidic foods, and tobacco products between cleanings because these substances can cause cavities and gum disease.
We recommend that you floss every day. According to the American Dental Association, flossing can help prevent cavities and gum disease by getting rid of excess plaque and tartar buildup.
