Why is six monoldcoupleCSSths the recommended time period for dental checkups? Well, during a six-month period, tartar build up will require a professional dental cleaning to remove it.

At the Gentle Dentist, the dental practice of Dr. Jeffrey Lash, DMD, our team in Spring Hill, Florida, we are pleased to get your smile ready for summer, with a dynamic dental cleaning and exam.

The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) reports that patients who have routine six-month dental cleanings and exams benefit from improved oral health. The six-month dental cleaning schedule was created for the “average” person in mind, which works well for those who middle-aged, don’t eat a lot of processed sweets or smoke, and who brush their teeth at least twice each day, without fail.

Some people may even need to be seen more often, depending on the state of their oral health. If you have any of the following, you may be more susceptible to damage from oral bacteria and should come in more often:

— You are older

— You have dry mouth

— You have periodontal disease

— Your diet is high in sugary foods and drinks

Maintaining your recommended routine dental visits is the perfect complement to daily at-home oral care for your healthy smile. So if you are ready for your summer cleaning and exam, our Gentle Dentist team in Spring Hill, Florida, invites you to give us a call at 352-398-4064 today!
