How Often Should I Have a Checkup and Cleaning?

Most patients should visit with their dentist every 6 to 12 months, all depending on their oral health needs. The American Dental Association (ADA) conducted their own study to answer the long-asked question : "What is the ideal number of checkups a patient should attend each year?" The ADA found that patients who are at a heightened risk of periodontal disease and other health issues could benefit from multiple dental visits per year (usually every six months). The study found that patients with an excellent oral health history could get by with just a single annual visit.

Regular checkups and teeth cleanings are a great help in preserving your oral health. Since every patient is different, so too will every treatment schedule be different. During your first appointment with Verity Smile Studio, we will recommend a treatment schedule based on your current and short-term oral health needs.

Checkups are More than Just Cleaning the Teeth

Checkups are all about detecting minor issues before they become more painful, costly, and time-consuming problems. There are two main parts to a dental visit: the examination and the cleaning. Each of these are essential to maintaining the health of your gums and teeth.

The checkup...

During the checkup, the dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and craniofacial features. If it has been some time since your last checkup, a digital X-ray or CT scan may be ordered. Dental professionals are also trained to look for signs of oral cancers.

The cleaning...

The dental professional will use a dental scaler, root planer, or even an ultrasonic cleaner to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) during your cleaning. These tools are useful in removing calculus buildup below gumlines and in between teeth (the areas that are difficult to reach with the bristles of a toothbrush). Your checkup may also include a polish, which is useful in creating a smooth enamel surface that makes it easier to brush and rinse away plaque-causing bacteria.

It’s important to note that calculus (the buildup that causes cavities) is virtually impossible to remove without specialized dental tools. This also requires the trained hand of a dental professional to not damage the tooth’s enamel.
