When Should I Start Visiting the Dentists for Routine Cleanings?

Midway Family and Cosmetic Dentistry provides dental services for the entire family, including kids, teenagers, and adults. Children as young as 12 months or whenever their first tooth erupts should begin visiting the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning. Building positive relationships and good oral hygiene habits at a young age is critical for life-long oral health. However, we understand that some patients may feel anxious about visiting the dentist’s office for cleaning. Our compassionate team of dental professionals wants you to feel as comfortable as possible during your next visit. Everyone should have access to high-quality dental care, and we’re committed to treating everyone with care and respect. Whether it’s been six months since your last cleaning or six years, it’s never too late to enjoy healthy and clean teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Routine Dental Cleanings?

Routine cleanings are meant to help you maintain the brightness and health of your teeth. However, there are numerous other benefits to regularly visiting the dentist’s office.

Some of the short- and long-term benefits of visiting your dentists for regular dental cleanings include the following:
