October is National Dental Hygiene Month.
How often should you see your hygienist for dental cleanings? Some people may say that you should go every six months, some people may say every 3-4 months, and others may only visit the dental office when they are experiencing pain.
So, which one is right for you?
Dental cleaning frequency is completely dependent upon the patient and their individual needs.
It is the same concept as when someone goes to physical therapy or rehab and the therapist creates a custom program for each individual in order to get them back to health (there is no blanket solution).
Patients who have seen the dentist regularly and practice good oral home care may only need to have a dental cleaning every six months because they have minimal build up and little to no bleeding in the gums. On the other hand, some patients who have not seen the dentist regularly and/or do not practice good oral home care may need to have their teeth cleaned every 3 to 4 months because they have moderate to severe build up and bleeding in the gums or they have been previously diagnosed with periodontal disease (loss of bone around the teeth).
The goal is to get your teeth cleaned frequently enough to keep the bacterial plaque build up at a minimal level so that either healing can occur or so that the tissues can stay in an optimum state of health.
In order to see what frequency is right for you, you should see your hygienist and discuss what treatment cycle will give your teeth and gums the best outcome.

Dr. Korenman and the Loveable Smiles Team
Contact us with any questions. We are here to help you.
Dr. Larry Korenman is dedicated to improving your overall health through dentistry.
It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including migraines, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.
Poor dental health is often caused by gum disease.
80% of people have Gum Disease and DO NOT KNOW IT! There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration. Many gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist.
Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.
If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.
We urge you to call Loveable Smiles for your Total Health Dental Care appointment where we will check you for gum disease at 972-231-0585.

Once seen as a treatment for teenagers, more and more adults are now opting to realign their teeth.
Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles is seeing this trend in his office in Richardson, TX.
Adults of all ages are electing to straighten their teeth later in life both to improve their looks and to fix long-standing dental issues.
Some patients may have either lost a tooth or had previous dental work that’s causing problems. Often, their teeth are simply showing the wear and tear of five or more decades of work. Frequently they are having muscle and joint pain or they have noticed their gums have receded.
Better Dental Care & Technology
Older adults are in a better position to get their teeth straightened.
Unlike in our grandparents’ generation where full sets of dentures were common, today, adult teeth are in better shape due to superior dental care and prevention measures such as fluoridated water.
Additionally, dental technology is extremely advanced allowing for improved dental imaging and updated appliances that help straighten teeth much faster.
There are plenty of alternatives available for adults who want braces but don’t want the look of metal in their mouth. Dr. Korenman is an Invisalign provider. This orthodontic method uses aligners that are smooth and clear.
These aligners get replaced every few weeks as your teeth are repositioned.
The average Invisalign case can be completed in about one year!
Warning Against DIY Teeth Straightening
Unfortunately, with this trend in adults opting to realign their teeth, there has also been an increase in patients trying to straighten their teeth themselves with such things small rubber bands, clay, hair ties or aligners sold on-line.
Trying to close a gap or straighten your teeth yourself can increase the risk of infection and serious damage to your teeth and gums, including tooth loss.
These self, oral care “hacks” often lead to people spending serious time and money with a dental professional — the very thing they were trying to avoid in the first place.
Dr. Korenman is a very well-trained dentist who is responsible for the proper placement of the teeth using Invisalign aligners. He has the technology and knowledge to create and administer custom Invisalign treatments for patients. Learn more about Invisalign on our website here.
