How often should I be seen for examinations and cleanings?

Return to FAQs

For most of our patients, we recommend an examination and cleaning every six months. These preventive services are an important part of your dental care. The cleaning helps us keep your teeth free from plaque and tartar, which contribute to cavities and gum disease, and your examination gives Dr. Narra the opportunity to check the condition of your teeth and gums and look for any problems that might be developing.

For some of our patients, it is appropriate to be seen more often – especially if we are treating periodontal disease or another concern. You may need cleanings more frequently to stop the progress of periodontal disease, or we may need to monitor a possible developing condition. If it’s been a while since your last dental visit, we may also recommend more frequent visits for a time in order to get you back on track.

Dr. Narra will discuss your individual needs with you and create a treatment program designed to meet your dental goals. We believe in meeting each person where they are at, and you will never be judged or made to feel embarrassed about your current dental health. We are here to help you make goals that you can commit to so that you can look and feel your best.
