With advancements in dental care and dental products, many people ask if going to the dentist every six months is still necessary.
Although dentistry has advanced, it is still recommended that you schedule an appointment every six-months with your dentist. A professional cleaning is important, but there are many dental health issues that, in the early stages, are hard to notice. Your dentist is able to check your teeth and gums and find these issues early on before they become more serious. When your dentist spots any signs of trouble early on, it is much easier to treat.
With that being said, there are some individuals that may need to visit the dentist more than two times per year. If you have gum disease, a weak immune system, or a predisposition to plaque build-up you should speak with your dentist to find out how often you should schedule your appointments.
If you are due for your six-month cleaning, be sure to schedule your appointment with us today. Following your cleaning, you can discuss how often you should be coming in for visits based on your dental health.
