Routine dental cleanings can prevent the development of advanced oral health concerns. Patients who visit the dentist every six months for regular dental cleanings enjoy healthier, cleaner, brighter smiles. The health of your teeth and gums can affect the health of your entire body, and the quality of your life. Dunnellon, FL dentist office Perkins Dentistry offers comprehensive oral health exams and thorough dental cleanings for disease prevention and oral health maintenance.
Dr. Carter Perkins recommends visiting the dentist at least twice a year.
Teeth cleanings can help to prevent oral diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease. Professional dental cleanings remove plaque, tartar, and disease causing bacteria from hard to reach areas. Even patients who practice diligent at-home oral hygiene and brush and floss will benefit from thorough dental cleanings.
Regular professional dental cleanings should be considered part of your daily oral hygiene routine. Dr. Perkins and our dental care team encourage preventive dentistry to avoid the need for more advanced, and costly dental procedures.

Dental Cleanings What to Expect
Our dental hygienists are compassionate, highly trained, and are passionate about helping our patients maintain their healthiest smiles. Your hygienist will ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed. If you have any concerns about your dental cleaning, never hesitate to ask, we are always happy to answer your questions.
Using specialized tools and a gentle technique your hygienist will thoroughly and carefully clean all surfaces of the teeth. Dental cleanings are designed to remove harmful bacteria from the teeth and gums. Your dental hygienist can access regions of the teeth and gums that are difficult to reach with a tooth brush or floss. Patients who receive regular dental cleanings are less prone to developing gum disease.
The American Dental Association and Dr. Carter recommend that most patients get their teeth cleaned professionally at least twice a year. For patients with gum disease or otherwise compromised oral health, they may benefit from more frequent cleanings.
