How Often Should You Get Your Teeth Cleaned?
Getting your teeth professionally cleaned in Marietta is important for removing plaque and tartar buildup that your toothbrush leaves behind. The average person should go to the dentist every six months for a cleaning, but some people may need to go more often.
Who Should Get Their Teeth Cleaned More Often?
Increase your tooth-cleaning frequency if you fall into any of the following categories:
You Have Braces
Having all of the components of braces in your mouth (like brackets and wires) cause your teeth to collect plaque more frequently. In addition, it’s hard to get your teeth clean when they’re covered by these appliances. To keep your teeth clean and decrease your chances of developing tooth decay while in braces, we may recommend that you get your teeth professionally cleaned as often as every three months.
Poor Oral Hygiene
Whether you don’t brush your teeth like you should, or can’t due to a disability or other reason, you should consider going to the dentist more often for cleanings. We can evaluate your condition and help you determine the appropriate frequency of your cleanings and steps to try at home to boost your oral health.
Mouths that have crooked and crowded teeth tend to collect more plaque, which is difficult to remove because of all the slants and tight spaces between them. To eliminate your chances of developing tooth decay and gum infections we may recommend that you have your teeth cleaned every three to four months.
