How often should I be seen for cleanings and examinations?

When teeth and gums are healthy, it is recommended by the American Dental Association that adults and children visit the dentist and have their teeth professionally cleaned and examined twice a year.  For patients with gum disease, professional cleaning is recommended every 3-4 months as well as for those with special dental needs, such as children undergoing orthodontic treatment (ie braces).  If you are unsure how often you should visit the dentist, we would be glad to assist.
