How Often Should I Get My Teeth Cleaned? Alpharetta, GA
Teeth Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings are typically recommended twice per year (or every six months). This schedule is often all that is needed to keep a healthy mouth if you brush and floss regularly on your own. Six months is the approximate time frame that even the best oral care patients will develop hardened plaque or tartar buildup. Only a cleaning from your dentist can remove this harmful substance before it causes problems.

Biannual dental cleanings are enough for most patients – but not all patients. Some people need cleanings more often, including those that have the following:

  • Braces
  • Heavy tooth stain
  • High risk of dental problems
  • Moderate plaque buildup

By scheduling a teeth cleaning on your own terms – even if it’s every 3-4 months – you can enjoy a healthier mouth and fresher breath. A professional cleaning will lift away soft bacteria, calcified tartar and stains. Since most patients are not dental experts with professional tools at home, it’s common for us to miss areas here and there when we brush and floss on our own. A cleaning from you dentist, however, can give you a fresh, clean start and prevent costly dental problems from developing.

Do you love the feeling of a freshly polished smile? Even if you don’t necessarily qualify for or need more frequent cleanings, you can still schedule them for your own personal satisfaction and comfort. It is not uncommon for patients to schedule a teeth cleaning with us before a first date, job interview or other big event. A clean mouth is a confident mouth!

What Our Happy Patients Say

Sam S.

The staff is so incredible here! They got me the care I needed very quickly, and they answered all my questions about my procedure and aftercare. They also showed me pictures of my teeth, so I could have visuals to know exactly what concerns they were talking about before my procedure. 10/10 will be back for all my dental needs!

Milan P.

This is hands down the best dentist I have ever been too. I can’t express how grateful I am with all the staff and Dr. Parikh. Dr. Parikh and the treatment coordinator, whose name is also Milan(!!) always took the time to explain all the treatment I needed. I will most definitely return and recommend this office to all of my friends and family!

Christina N.

I had to have a root canal and deep cleaning, all the doctor's and staff are so kind and patient with me. I do suffer a little anxiety going to the dentist and being 67 years of age I have had my share of different dentist. But I must say they are the best. Makes me wonder about the service i have been getting over the years from other dentist

Elizabeth D.

Very nice staff and Dr. Parikh was great. Explained everything thoroughly to me. Dentists visits are never comfortable but Dr. Parikh did his best work and told me to let him know if I needed to pause. Would go back regularly if I weren’t temporarily living here!
