Checkup and Cleaning

How Often Should I Get a Dental Checkup and Cleaning?

When it comes to taking care of your teeth, prevention is much better than treating gum disease or cavities. Dental checkups and cleanings on a regular basis with DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU can help prevent many illnesses and conditions of the mouth. The reason you need a dental exam periodically is that some conditions can be undetected until they are at an advanced stage. By the time you experience pain associated with gum disease or tooth decay, it can be harder to treat. By seeing DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU twice a year, you can prevent problems from becoming more serious and difficult to treat.

Regular Dental Checkups and Cleanings

It is usually recommended to see DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU at least once a year. An annual appointment is the minimum for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. However, many dentists suggest dental appointments every six months. Those in the higher risk group may need to see DR. MARCELA ORTEGA / DR. CRISTINA IONESCU every three or four months. The high risk group includes:

  • People with diabetes
  • People who currently have gum disease
  • Women who are pregnant
  • People who use tobacco
  • Those who are susceptible to cavities or who have a lot of plaque
  • Those who have weakened immune systems and can’t fight off bacteria
