Imagine keeping your natural teeth forever — never needing dentures, never experiencing the embarrassment of tooth loss. It’s possible when you practice good oral hygiene that includes regular professional dental cleanings with a holistic dentist!
Dr. Patel and the dedicated team at Green Dentistry in San Francisco want every patient to have clean, healthy teeth and gums so they can enjoy their best smile and quality of life for as long as possible!
Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, so it is only natural that a healthy mouth is a key component in staying healthy overall. To keep your mouth looking and feeling its healthiest, we highly encourage every patient to visit Green Dentistry in San Francisco for a professional cleaning at least every 3 months.
Most dentists recommend cleanings every 6 months as the standard for maintaining oral health. However, as a holistic dentist, we know that getting cleanings every 3 months gives our patients the best chance at achieving and maintaining excellent long-term oral and overall health.
Additionally, some patients (especially mouth breathers) are more prone to oral disease or predisposed to other health problems in which oral health is a factor. Getting a professional dental cleaning every 3 months not only keeps your teeth and mouth healthier, it also allows Dr. Patel to more closely monitor your health for any changes that merit additional investigation or treatment.
The biggest benefit to quarterly dental cleanings is the time and money it saves you in dental treatments. More frequent cleanings means less chance for tooth decay to develop, and if it does develop, we can catch it at the very early stages, when treatment is simpler and less costly for you. This means less need for extensive dental restorations like crowns and root canal therapy. While it may seem like getting your teeth cleaned every 3 months is an added expense, it is really a long-term cost saving measure.
Anyone with teeth needs regular professional dental cleanings — toddlers, children, teens, adults… everyone. The best way to keep your teeth and gums healthy is to take care of your basic oral hygiene at home on a daily basis and visit our holistic dental office in San Francisco every 3 months for a professional cleaning.
Brushing and flossing at home is essential but can never be enough to completely prevent tooth decay, no matter how diligent and careful you are with your oral hygiene routine. Only a professional dental cleaning can get the hidden plaque and tartar that a toothbrush and floss cannot touch.
“The staff and doctors are super friendly! Dr. Patel was kind and walked me through every concern I had for my appointment. I love that they offer so many different services, like teeth whitening, deep cleaning, and even a dental spa!”
