How Often Should I Come in For A Checkup and Why?

Posted on 4/15/2020 by Shiv Sharma, DDS
How Often Should I Come in For A Checkup and Why? Many believe that simply brushing your teeth once or maybe even twice a day is enough oral healthcare to keep your teeth and gums healthy. What you don't realize is that there may be other oral health concerns that are hard to detect and can become a serious problem for you. While it can be a hassle to visit our office, you risk facing serious oral health issues. It's necessary to schedule regular dental appointments for checkups and professional cleaning, but how often is the right amount of times to come in?

It Should Be Based on Your Personal Oral Hygiene

The rule of thumb for visits to our office has been twice a year for many people, but that is not ideal for everyone. Scheduling dental visits should be based on each person's personal hygiene, previous medical conditions, and their daily habits. Even if you take extra good care of your teeth, it's still important for you to get regular checkups. Our dental specialists are here to help and are able to diagnose problems you oftentimes cannot see. Some of these ailments include oral cancer and gum disease. Luckily, if identified early, they can often be treated at a manageable stage. Visiting our dental specialists twice a year will work for most people, but some will need more frequent visits due to ailments going on with their mouth. This schedule can change for a person during their lifetime, and it all comes down to your overall oral hygiene. People with a higher risk of dental diseases, i.e. smokers or diabetics, will find themselves having to visit our offices more frequently in most circumstances. Feel free to get in touch with us today to schedule your next appointment. Our experts will recommend the best schedule and routine for your oral care, depending on your situation.
