At the office of Anthony Bartels, DDS, we place a big emphasis on prevention because we would prefer to help our patients avoid dental conditions whenever possible. That is why we encourage patients to schedule regular dental exams and cleanings in order to maintain their health.
Professional dental cleanings are important. Even the most diligent brushers and flossers cannot reach every surface of every tooth, and calculus and bacteria collect in those places. When you have a professional dental cleaning, our skilled and gentle hygienists can remove calculus and bacteria from those hard to reach places, allowing you to have a fresh start after your dental cleaning.
For each patient, we recommend a certain recall frequency. For many patients, twice-yearly is sufficient to maintain your health. For other patients who suffer from periodontal disease or have frequent decay, more frequent visits may be beneficial.
