How Frequently Should You Get Cleaning?

To maintain optimal oral health, the Dental Association recommends regular dental visits, at intervals determined by a dentist.

The frequency of their regular dental visits should be tailored by their dentists to accommodate for their current oral health status and health history.

Individual risk factors help to dictate the frequency of cleanings needed per year to help prevent gum disease; high-risk patients would likely benefit from more frequent dental visits, while low-risk patients may see the same benefits from only one cleaning per year.

The key is that personalized oral care is a necessity for good dental health.
