Teeth cleanings should be scheduled with our Tacoma office twice a year. While you’re hear on this visit, our dental hygienist will remove plaque from your teeth, especially where brushing can’t reach such as underneath the gum and in between teeth. After the dental cleaning is complete we apply fluoride to help protect your teeth once you leave the office.
Fluoride is a relatively recent but important advancement in dental health. Research shows that a moderate and consistent exposure to fluoride helps to strengthen and rebuild tooth structure and helps in preventing cavities.
Q. How often do I need to get my teeth cleaned?
A. Teeth cleanings are generally scheduled and recommended every 6 months. However, your hygienist may suggest dental cleanings every 3 to 4 months depending on the condition of your gums.
