How often should I have my teeth cleaned?

Typically, adults should have their teeth actively maintained by a hygienist every 6 months. Even the most motivated tooth brusher can’t get to all the nooks and crannies in the mouth, where tartar can easily build up and cause dental disease.

Patients who have established gum and jawbone disease, or patients with orthodontic braces, need more regular teeth cleaning. These patients are usually seen every 3-4 months.
