Why Dental Cleanings Every Six Months Are Essential

Some people believe that if they brush and floss twice daily and don’t have a toothache, they can skip dental appointments. This often leads to sudden root infections and unchecked tooth decay. Soon, you may be facing a dental emergency.

Dental exams and teeth cleanings at our North Phoenix dentist office are essential for long-term oral health—even if you brush and floss without fail.

Why Not Customize Preventive Dentistry Schedules?

The American Dental Association recommends dental exams and teeth cleanings for all people every six months. However, if you have periodontal disease or are prone to tooth decay, your dentist will likely customize your exam schedule or recommend additional treatments like dental cleanings in Phoenix for periodontal disease or fissure sealants to lower your cavity risk.

Here’s What Happens During a Preventive Dentistry Exam

Our 85022 dentists provide an inclusive exam that includes a careful look at your teeth and gums, an oral cancer screening, x-rays as needed, and a conversation with you to explain all findings.

If your dentist discovers a cavity or other oral health concerns during your exam, we schedule an appointment for treatment. This can include anything from a tooth-colored filling to a root canal treatment.

The teeth cleaning portion of your exam rids your teeth of the very things that cause oral health conditions like cavities and periodontal disease. With our specialized tools, we get rid of all that your toothbrush and floss leave behind.

A healthy smile for life requires your diligence at home and regular dental visits. Together, you and your Phoenix dentist can keep you smiling for life.
