How Often Should You See the Dentist
Posted By: Eric Crawford - 1/17/2018 9:00:00 AM

We love our patients, so we’d be more than happy to see you every day! Alas, we realize that’s not really possible, so here are some more realistic guidelines for making appointments.

In general, it all depends on your oral health status and your health history.

For most patients, the optimal frequency to visit the dentist is twice a year. In six months, enough tartar and plaque can build up to require a dental check-up and cleaning, especially if your dental hygiene isn’t as rigorous as it should be.  It is very easy to request an appointment (from our website, Facebook page, Google or by phone).  Our convenient office hours are Monday - Thursday 8am - 5pm.

For others with gum disease, a genetic predisposition for plaque build-up or cavities, or a weakened immune system, you’ll need to visit more frequently for optimal care. We offer a variety of Periodontal Therapy treatments that would be customized to your specific needs. 

Depending on where you fall in those categories, we will prescribe the necessary frequency to keep your optimal health. There are so many avenues for us to stay in contact, so please make sure we have the most up to date telephone number, mailing address, and email.  You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

It’s important to keep your routine visits with us so that:

• We can check for problems that you might not see or feel.

• We can find early signs of decay (decay doesn’t become visible or cause pain until it reaches more advanced stages).

• We can treat any other oral health problems found (generally, the earlier a problem is found, the more manageable it is).

There you have it! Those are the brass tacks for how often you should schedule an appointment.

But don’t let this keep you from stopping in and saying hi whenever you’re in the neighborhood! We love seeing your smile!
