Common dental cleaning questions

How frequently do I need to attend dental cleanings and exams?

In order to maintain optimal health, we recommend that most patients attend Spokane Valley dental cleaning and exams twice a year about 6 months apart. For patients experiencing gum disease, more visits might be necessary.

What age should my child start going to the dentist?

We recommend that children come to their first appointment around age 1, or when their first tooth comes in, whichever comes first.

Why do I need to get a teeth cleaning if I brush my teeth?

Great question! While brushing and flossing do an excellent job of removing bacteria from your mouth on a daily basis, a regular “deep clean” to remove built-up plaque is necessary. This will reduce your risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
