    Only if you need it. Some practices promote a hygienist visit every 6 months as a money-spinner, and because they have to keep the hygienist busy. Some people I clean every 6 mos, most people every 9-12 mos, and some I have never cleaned at all because they simply don't need it. Over time, unnecessary ultrasonic scaling will eventually lead to the enamel at the neck of the teeth chipping off, especially the lower front teeth. That's a bad thing because it can lead to decay of the softer root surfaces. So, ask if you really need it, and don't just accept it as a given. LATER... Gee, people don't seem to like what I'm saying. As regards spongebrobrogers above, dentists have never only polished teeth without removing tartar. I still have perio textbooks from 30 years ago, and we cleaned it all off back then. And for dental solicitor below, he is right in that if a patient has periodontal disease, then either the dentist should treat them himself, or pass the patient to a hygienist, or a periodontist. But it's the LACK OF RECOGNISING gum disease and FAILING TO ARRANGE APPROPRIATE TREATMENT that leads to malpractice suits, not the fact that you haven't had a cleaning every 6 months just because "that's the way it's done". I have respect for hygienists and the work they perform, but does everyone develop gum problems and tartar buildup EVERY 6 months? We all might clean our cars every 2-3 weeks or whatever, but would we use cut-and-polish every time? Should we? When you've been in dentistry for 25 years, you'll see what damage excessive ultrasonic scaling can do to people's teeth - these can be people who have tried hard to look after their teeth all their lives, and suddenly the enamel is chipping off, they're developing root caries and root fractures, and they're having extractions. Really unpleasant and saddening dentistry. So, if you need a clean, then have it done, but don't be afraid to ask the dentist/hygienist if you REALLY need it. (Got that off my chest - feel better now!)
