Since our goal is to help you maintain excellent oral health and keep your natural teeth for a lifetime, prevention is a significant focus at Ackerman Family Dentistry. Typically, our dentists recommend that you get your teeth cleaned and have a dental checkup every six months unless you have gum disease, which will require more frequent cleanings to prevent progression.
Caring Dentistry for Kids in Boise
Dr. Daniel and Dr. Robert also recommend that children see us every six months for cleanings and checkups, starting at the age of three years old. However, if your child does not feel comfortable or ready for a cleaning at this time, we never push them to move forward until they're ready.
Professional Dental Cleanings & Exams
Professional cleanings help prevent the need for more extensive and more costly restorative treatment by removing the plaque buildup that causes problems like tooth decay and gum disease. This is also a great time to review your home care routine with your hygienist to ensure that you're using proper brushing and flossing techniques.
Even if it's been a while since your last dental cleaning, we encourage you to come to our Boise dental office. We're happy to meet you right where you're at with your dental care and focus on the aspects that are most important to you in a judgment-free manner.
