How often should you go to the dentist?

In order to keep up with your oral health, attending regularly scheduled dental cleanings is important. Dental cleanings help keep our teeth and gums free of bacteria and disease.

Regular dental cleanings remove the sticky layer of bacteria and plaque that builds up over time on our teeth and gums. To help at home, brushing and flossing is a great way to prevent the bacteria build up, but doing this cannot remove all of the bacteria and plaque like a dental cleaning can.

At East Peoria Dental, we recommend that our patients have their teeth cleaned at least twice a year. This helps to remove plaque, prevents gum disease, and allows us to keep an eye on your teeth, gums and mouth for any more serious issues. Our dental visits help to spot any issues such as cavities, receding gums, and oral cancer.

Our skilled staff will use special tools in order to clean your teeth and gums. If needed, x-rays will be taken and the dentist will meet with you to discuss the health of your teeth and gums. If any further treatment is needed, the dentist will discuss those details as well.

Regular dental visits are a great way to keep your teeth and gums looking and feeling healthy. Most insurance companies will cover dental cleanings twice a year. It is important to check with your insurance company to understand your coverage before you schedule your cleaning.

How long is a dentist appointment?

Many patients attend regular dental visits twice a year to get their teeth cleaned and evaluated. This ensures their teeth and gums are kept healthy and feeling great. Maintaining our oral health is extremely important to help avoid more serious issues such as gum disease.

On average, our dental cleaning process takes around 30-45 minutes, but this depends on the condition of the patient’s teeth. Other treatment appointments may take longer depending on what is needed.

During the cleaning the sticky layer of bacteria and plaque will be removed using dental tools, and x-rays will be taken if needed. Our skilled team will ensure your mouth is free from any bacteria and plaque. X-rays will be carefully reviewed to help our team customize your cleaning needs.

Our goal is to get to know our patients and form a relationship. We want our patients to feel comfortable and relaxed when they enter our office. We know your time is valuable, and we strive to give you quality service in a reasonable amount of time.

Regular dental visits are so important to keep up with our oral health. Our team at East Peoria Dental will go above and beyond to ensure each patient has the best experience.
