Ideal teeth cleaning frequency has been shown to vary from person to person by multiple medical studies. How often your teeth need to be cleaned depends on the extent and severity of gum disease as well as your overall health and habits. For example, smokers and diabetics are more susceptible to gum disease and need to have teeth cleanings more often. If you have severe gum disease, more frequent cleanings are important to keep levels of disease-causing bacteria low and prevent them from doing more damage.

Cleaning frequency in your insurance guide is an arbitrary number picked by the insurance company. It does not taking into account your dental health. You may need teeth cleanings more or less often than stated in your policy. It is our duty to inform you of what would be your ideal cleaning frequency. It is your decision and responsibility to follow through with the recommendations.
We provide dental treatment in a relaxed and pleasant professional environment. If needed, we can further put you at ease using nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral medication. Our oral surgeon offers additional sedation services appropriate for the surgical work.
