How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

In a perfect world, everyone would brush and floss twice a day. Plaque builds up over time and this sticky bacterial film can solidify and turn into calculus or tartar.

This cement-like substance is removed by the hygienist at your regular cleaning visits. The average patient requires a six-month interval but some require a three-month interval. It not only serves to keep your mouth healthy and clean, but it also allows potential problems to be found and diagnosed earlier.
