HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET MY TEETH CLEANED?

“How often should I get my teeth cleaned?” I get this question a lot. Here are some factors that we use to determine each patient’s best cleaning schedule:

—Daily routine...How often is the patient brushing AND flossing? —Does the patient have any puffy/swollen/bleeding gums?

—Does the patient have any current or previous gum disease?

—Does the patient have any medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart conditions?
