The Academy of General Dentistry recommends visiting a dentist twice a year. These twice-a-year professional dental cleanings are instrumental in preventing oral health issues and reinforce the health regimen of brushing and flossing at home.
During the cleaning, you may experience any or all of the following:
- Removal of plaque and tartar
- Stain removal
- Fluoride application
- Tooth polishing, including fillings and crowns
