General Checkups & Cleanings
It is highly recommended that patients visit the dentist at least twice a year for cleanings. This is for routine check-ups and cleanings and to allow your dentist to look for problems you might not be able to see or feel yourself.
Patients with gum disease may require more frequent visits per year, and this includes patients who have a predisposition or tendency to get cavities or plaque buildup.
When you come for your routine visit, you will receive a cleaning, tooth polishing, prevention and care instructions. Based on your examination, any needed x-rays and treatment recommendations will be given.
These regular checkups prevent any problems from becoming a larger issue down the line. Your doctor can also detect the beginnings of tooth decay and provide a treatment plan to resolve it before it is too late, or harder to deal with.
Remember that certain conditions, such as stress or even illness, can affect the health of your mouth and your overall well-being. Talk to your doctor; it might be recommended that you have more than two visits a year, due to your particular dental state of health, and see what works best for you.
