How often should I see the dentist for an exam and cleaning?

Most children and adults should see their dentist for a regular cleaning and exam every six months.  People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental exams more than twice a year.  Tobacco and alcohol use, diabetes, pregnancy, periodontal and gum disease, poor oral hygiene and certain medical conditions are some of the many factors that your dentist takes into consideration when deciding how often you need your dental cleaning and check-ups.

Going to your regular check-ups will help to keep your gums and teeth healthy as well as detect any early problems such as gum disease, and cavities. The best way to maintain good oral health is to visit your dentist on a regular basis.


What causes Cavities in teeth?

Cavities occur when plaque, the sticky substance that forms on teeth, combines with the sugars and/ or starches of the foods that we eat. This combination produces acids that attack tooth enamel. The best way to prevent tooth decay is by brushing twice a day and flossing daily.  Frequent snacking, sticky foods and eating foods high in sugar content all contribute to the formation of cavities.


What ages of patients do you cater to?

We are a family practice and treat people of all ages.


Is bleaching available at your office?
