When was the last time you had a Dental Cleaning? How often do you get a Dental Cleaning? Oral health can be seen as a mirror of the general condition of your body. Our periodontal status can often tell us more than just what is happening in our gums or teeth.
Periodontitis is commonly triggered by plaque accumulation on the teeth, and even though good home care is essential to prevent it, regular visits to your dental office for a Dental Cleaning are essential to eliminate the accumulation of food debris in areas that brushing and flossing cannot keep clean, which can lead to periodontitis.
Most dentist recommend a Dental Cleaning every 6 months, but recent findings suggest that a Dental Cleaning every 3 or 4 months are a better interval, specially if you have a history of gingivitis or periodontal disease.
Your periodontist will help to determine what protocol is best for you.
