Preventative care: At least every 6 months
It is so important to do your part at home. We advise brushing twice daily for at least 2 minutes each time and flossing at least once daily. So many dental problems can be prevented with good oral hygiene practices. Keep in mind that even patients with good home care can develop dental decay or gum disease, and we recommend all patients to be seen at least every 6 months for a cleaning and routine exam.
Once we are able to complete a full dental examination, we may recommend more frequent cleanings or a periodontal cleaning depending on the health of your bone, tissues, and level of hardened plaque.
We recommend scheduling your next appointment before leaving each visit.
Kids Love to Smile!
Children love to be just like mom and dad. Help create good oral health care habits for the little ones in your life! Baby teeth should be cleaned twice a day, like adult teeth. When toddlers are able to brush on their own, monitor their habits. Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.
Scanlon Family Dental recommends a first dental visit for a cleaning around the age of three. We do encourage parents and grandparents to bring infants and toddlers to their own dental visits as a way to introduce the children to the office and atmosphere. Establishing regular visits at a young age will improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
