How often should I get my teeth cleaned?

Clean teeth aren’t just important for your appearance but also for your health. At River Stone Dental Center, we strongly recommend patients attend at least two checkups and cleanings every year or every six months. While we know you do a great job at brushing, flossing, and caring for your teeth at home, dental problems can easily go unnoticed by untrained eyes. By attending a dental exam and cleaning appointment at least twice a year, it’s easier to treat, manage, and prevent dental problems to encourage a healthy smile.

How do I prepare for a dental exam?

When you schedule an appointment for a dental checkup, we encourage you to continue your regular oral hygiene practices, such as brushing and flossing. This will give our team an idea of how well your routine works. Other ways to prepare for a dental check-up include filling out new patient forms, bringing a list of your current medications, and bringing a list of concerns to talk about with our general dentist.

How much is a dental exam and cleaning?

Biannual dental exams and cleanings are essential for oral and overall health, making them a valuable investment. Most dental insurance plans cover this preventive visit as removing tartar and plaque from teeth can prevent costly treatments. If you do not have dental insurance, our office accepts several payment options and offers a dental savings plan to make dental exams and cleanings in Germantown, MD, easily accessible and affordable.
