Both children and adults can benefit from a dental cleaning and oral exam once every six months. Although under certain conditions, patients may need more frequent visitations. If you are experiencing pain, bleeding, swelling, or other oral health issues, you should visit a dentist as soon as possible to address and treat the problem. During dental checkups, dentists can spot early signs of problems and be proactive in treatment before they progress.
Can a Dentist Clean My Teeth?
Dental cleanings are a part of routine dental appointments. Trained dental hygienists perform teeth cleanings to remove plaque and tartar from the surface of your teeth to prevent cavities, gum disease, infections, and the buildup of bacteria. Teeth cleanings typically take between 30 minutes to an hour to perform. After your cleaning, teeth-brushing, flossing, rinsing, fluoride treatment, and x-rays, your dentist or dental hygienist can diagnose any cavities or other problems.
