How often should I have a dental cleaning and examination? For optimal oral health, we recommend that you find a dentist get a dental cleaning and exam every six months. An oral exam consists of examining your teeth, removing plaque, potentially taking x-rays, along with a deep tooth cleaning and polish.
How do I know if I have gum disease? Unfortunately, most people that have gum disease are unaware of it. Because gum disease is painless as it begins, it is crucial to schedule regular dental exams.

If you have a concern about gum disease we recommend you make an appointment at our dentist clinic.
