It is generally advisable to visit the dentist for a cleaning and exam twice per year, but depending on the health of your mouth Dr. Tucker may recommend visiting more or less often. Regular examinations can pay off significantly down the road. When issues are discovered and addressed early, it can prevent them from becoming increasingly painful and costly in the future. Regular cleanings also help your teeth look their best by removing minor stains before they worsen and require more advanced whitening treatments. They also preserve the health of your teeth so you can hang onto them longer as you age.
