Hudson County Dentist - Hoboken Dental CleaningOne of the most common questions we receive from our patients involves how often they should visit our office for their regularly scheduled dental cleanings. Rather than take a one-size-fits-all approach to this question, Dr. Frank prefers to address it on a case by case basis.

If your teeth and gums are relatively healthy and you don’t experience a rapid buildup of plaque and tartar, then you most likely will be fine visiting our Hudson County dentists twice a year. However, there are also many patients who will benefit from more frequent visits.

Many of our patients come for dental cleanings every three to four months. Dr. Frank actually prefers this schedule for patients who are trying to get systemic oral health issues such as gum disease under control. A more frequent trip to the dentist is also effective if you experience heavy plaque buildup on your teeth. In this situation, coming for a cleaning more frequently allows us to remove this plaque in a timelier manner, which can reduce your risk of gum disease.

Ultimately, the best way to get an accurate answer to this question based on your unique individual oral health needs is to visit our Hudson County dentists for a checkup. During this appointment, Dr. Frank and his team will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums in order to recommend the ideal plan for you.
