Routine dental cleanings are important in maintaining the health of your mouth. There are three key risk factors for gum disease; smoking, diabetes, and genetics. Researchers have examined the link between frequency of teeth cleanings and long term tooth loss. Two dental cleanings a year provide significant benefits to people with one or more of the risk factors, while people with two or three risk factors may require more than two cleanings a year.
