The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients visit a dentist twice every year. Luckily, most major insurance companies will cover those two visits per year. The ADA recommends going to the dentist at least twice a year because traditional brushing methods can’t remove tartar, though plaque prevention is still possible.
Dental cleanings remove bacteria, tartar, and plaque from your teeth. Getting tartar and plaque removed is important to make sure that your teeth stay healthy. As an added bonus, your cleanings include tooth polishing to give your teeth a nice shine!
