Teeth Cleaning

At Robinswood Dental, we take great care when we clean your teeth and remove soft (plaque) and hard (tartar, calculus, or stains) deposits from your teeth. This will greatly help in preventing or delay the progression of periodontal diseases. Maintain good oral hygiene, and having your teeth cleaned regularly are the most effective ways to prevent periodontal diseases.

How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

As with routine dental examinations, the frequency of professional teeth cleaning will depend on the health of your teeth and gums. Healthy children and adults should have their teeth cleaned at least once every 12-24 months. If you are at risk of periodontal diseases because of age, tobacco use, rate of accumulation of deposits, personal oral hygiene practices, or medical conditions such as diabetes or HIV infection, your teeth may need to be cleaned more often. Your dentist or dental hygienist can help you determine how often you should have your teeth cleaned.
