Is fluoride safe to use on my teeth?

Fluoride is scientifically proven to be helpful in preventing tooth decay and helping them remain stronger for longer. We recommend that our patients use toothpaste with fluoride to help reinforce their teeth on a daily basis. We also offer fluoride treatments during dental hygiene appointments.

How often do I need a dental hygiene cleaning?

Dental hygiene cleanings are an irreplaceable method for helping maintain your oral health. We usually recommend anywhere between 3-6 months for your dental cleanings. Many insurances cover more than one cleaning a year and we encourage you to utilize this to its fullest. Speak with the dentist and the hygienist to find out if you would benefit from a more frequent schedule of hygiene cleanings.
