Cleanings & Exams

In order to maintain optimal oral health, it’s important to practice good hygiene habits at home while also visiting a dentist regularly for examinations and dental cleanings. Examinations can help Dr. Tucker and our team identify current and potential health issues within your mouth, and cleanings will help supplement at-home care by reaching areas that are commonly missed by routine brushing and flossing.

How often should I be seen for dental cleanings and exams?

It is generally advisable to visit the dentist for a teeth 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.
