Routine Dental Care

Professional teeth cleanings are scheduled twice a year, while X-rays are normally done once a year. Still, depending on what your dentist or dental hygienist observes in your mouth, they might do other exams during your visit. For children, a dentist may recommend molar sealants to help prevent cavities in hard-to-brush areas.

Whether you need any additional cleanings, exams or treatment, the key is to keep going back to the dentist for routine dental care to prevent or catch problems as they arise.
