Professional Teeth Cleaning Services for Patients in Goodyear, AZ
Burns Dentistry—a trusted local practice offering more than 100 years of collective experience—proudly performs routine dental cleanings for patients in Goodyear, Arizona, and the surrounding area. Also known as dental prophylaxis, a teeth cleaning generally involves performing an oral exam, removing any plaque and tartar, brushing and flossing, and taking X-rays (as needed), all with the goal of preventing cavities, gum disease, and other oral issues.
How Often Should You Visit a Dentist for Teeth Cleaning?
Many patients wonder how frequently they need to attend tooth cleaning appointments. The answer will vary from one person to another—based on factors such as their current oral condition and health history—but dentists generally recommend undergoing a professional teeth cleaning at least once every six months.
Although it is certainly important to follow an at-home oral care routine, you should still regularly undergo dental cleanings, since they are far more thorough than what you could accomplish on your own. Dentists and dental hygienists have access to specialized tools and can reach your teeth from different angles. Plus, they have the training and experience needed to identify issues such as periodontal disease and oral cancer.
