How often should I schedule dental cleanings and exams?

The American Dental Association and Dr. Froude encourage patients to schedule and maintain dental visits at least every six months. This biannual consistency allows Dr. Froude and our team to detect and address potential oral health issues early, such as cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. However, based on your specific oral health, it may be possible that you require more frequent visits.

Why are dental cleanings and exams important?

Dental cleanings and exams are crucial for maintaining oral health. Regular cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that tend to lead to cavities and gum disease. Exams help detect dental issues early, preventing them from progressing into more complex cases. Without routine cleanings and exams, patients are at risk for uncomfortable and costly treatments down the road.

How can I prepare for my dental cleaning?

With or without a dental cleaning appointment, it is important to maintain regular oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth. However, if you have a dental appointment approaching, it can be helpful to place a little extra focus on your oral care. Besides maintaining your oral health, we encourage you to come prepared to discuss any concerns or changes in your oral health, arrive on time, and bring your dental insurance information, if applicable.
