How often should I have a dental exam and cleaning?
You should have your teeth checked and cleaned every six months, although your dentist or hygienist may recommend every three months, depending on your circumstances and individual needs.

Regular exams and cleanings are vital in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums. A good dental exam and cleaning includes: a medical history review, diagnostic digital X-rays, oral cancer screening, gum disease evaluation, examination of current restorations and any potential decay, removal of calculus and plaque, tooth polishing, oral hygiene recommendations and potential dietary recommendations.
