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.

I’m thinking of getting an electric toothbrush. Is it better for my teeth?

An electric toothbrush can be a fantastic tool for many people, but unfortunately it is not for everyone. If you’re interested in switching from a manual toothbrush to an electric one, or vice versa, we suggest bringing it up during your dental hygiene appointment. Your dentist and hygienist will be able to give you the best advice based on your oral health.
