How often should I see a dentist?
The frequency with which an individual is recommended to see the dentist varies. After any necessary treatment has been done and we have determined that you are doing a great job taking care of your own dental health, we recommend coming in for a check-up every year. In addition, we recommending coming in for a clean every 6 months.
If you are on the right track, x-rays can be taken less frequently, sometimes just every few years. Your dentist will explain the reason for any x-ray taken, and will also discuss the findings, if any, with you. We welcome questions, and it also shows us that you are being proactive in taking care of your oral health. Prevention and routine is always our preferred care, and its also easier on your wallet! We want you to keep the teeth that you have, that’s why regular dental care is important. If you haven’t been to the dentist for a while, we recommend coming in for an exam so that we can assess your specific needs.
