We suggest that you come in for a professional check-up and dental cleaning twice a year. If someone has impeccable dental hygiene, some dentists say that this can be stretched to two years under extreme circumstances but this is not recommended. Luckily, in most cases, dental insurance plans cover professional teeth cleanings every 6 months. Dental cleanings do not take long if you get them done regularly. If your teeth are healthy and clean, then a dental cleaning should take about 60 minutes.
Although, sometimes there are special cases that will take longer, like if you have poor oral health and you have cavities and/or a large build up of tartar. In these cases, a dental cleaning can take closer to an hour. When you maintain your oral health, you’ll spend less time in the dentist’s chair. We are happy and ready to make sure your smile remains radiant whenever you decide to come in and visit us.
