1How often should I have my teeth cleaned?
We usually recommend getting your teeth cleaned and having a check-up done every six months. However, if you have a specific need, our dentist may recommend more regular visits.
2How long does a dental cleaning take?
Most dental cleanings last between 30 minutes to an hour on average, and are performed in a lying position in a comfortable dental chair.
3How can I prevent tartar
Select a fluoride-containing tartar control toothpaste. Dental floss is the only way to remove plaque between your teeth and keep tartar out of these difficult-to-reach spots, regardless of how good you are with a toothbrush. Daily rinsing is recommended. To help kill plaque-causing germs, use an antiseptic mouthwash every day.
4Can I eat Immediately after a dental cleaning session?
You can eat after a regular dental cleaning, but acidic or abrasive foods and drinks should be avoided. If you had a fluoride treatment while getting your teeth cleaned, you should wait at least 30 minutes before consuming anything.
