The American Dental Association® (ADA) recommends that patients visit the dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and checkup. However, some patients may need to visit more often, depending on their individual needs. During a professional dental cleaning, our hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar buildup on your teeth. They will also polish your teeth and floss them to remove any food particles or other debris. Our prosthodontist and team can also give you advice on personal hygiene habits that you can do at home to help maintain your optimal oral health. Such habits include:
- Brushing your teeth at least twice a day with a toothbrush that has soft bristles.
- Flossing your teeth at least once a day.
- Using an antibacterial mouthwash to help kill bacteria in your mouth.
- Eating a balanced diet and avoiding sugary snacks and drinks.
- Visiting your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings.
These habits, as well as the dedication of our prosthodontist and team to your oral health care, will help reduce the risk of oral health issues, prevent bad breath and keep your natural teeth for life. Call us at 602-956-2260 if you need to schedule your routine dental cleaning. We can help you keep your beautiful smile.
