How Often Do I Need Regular Dental Cleanings?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Do you brush your teeth every day? Do you visit the dentist twice a year for routine dental check-ups and cleanings without any major concerns from your dentist and wonder, "Do I really need to go two times a year?" The answer is yes and for reasons beyond just having pesky plaque removed.

Not taking care of your teeth can lead to serious oral health and general health issues. Some concerns include:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth loss
  • Gum disease
  • Bone loss
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke

But, I take care of my teeth, I brush and floss every day, you say. Great! The American Dental Association recommended oral hygiene regimen includes brushing twice daily and flossing once a day. However, regular dental check-ups are also an important part of this routine. They not only help you keep your teeth clean, but they're also an opportunity for Dr. Frank to check for other oral health issues such as:

  • TMJ
  • Tooth decay
  • Periodontal disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Obstructed airways that cause sleep apnea

By catching these conditions at an earlier stage, it can save you pain and money. Visiting our Hoboken dentists twice a year ensures such issues are caught before they progress.

Dr. Frank is committed to providing you with the exceptional dental care that you can deserve. All of our Hoboken dentists are trained in the most advanced techniques and technology to ensure a safe, comfortable, and quality dental experience.
