We recommend patients have an exam and cleaning twice per year at six-month intervals. These regular exams and cleanings are a very important part of your overall oral and physical health and well-being.
Cleaning is a word that has been misused to identify a procedure that is routinely completed on a patient that is free of disease or has a healthy mouth. The appropriate word for this type of "cleaning" is prophylaxis, which is the specific type of cleaning that most insurance companies cover two times per year. There are several different types of "cleanings" that are recommended by the dentist and hygienist depending on the patient's oral health. To determine which type of "cleaning" is prescribed for you, please ask your dental professional.
