Frequent oral exams and teeth cleanings are essential for maintaining your oral health and keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong. But how often do you really need to see the dentist? Find out in this blog from Carlson Family Dentistry now.
The ADA and other major dental associations all agree that most patients need to see a dentist like Dr. Carlson or Dr. Cade every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam, and that’s our recommendation at Carlson Family Dentistry, too. For most patients, a six-month interval for dental exams and teeth cleanings is the best option.
However, this is not always the case. Some patients, such as those who have gum disease, may need to see a dentist every 3-4 months for periodontal care to halt and reverse the effects of gum disease.
After your first consultation at Carlson Family Dentistry, Dr. Cade or Dr. Carlson will be able to recommend the proper appointment interval for your specific needs, so come in for an appointment today.
Not convinced that twice-yearly oral exams and teeth cleanings are necessary? Let’s take a look at a few of the advantages of coming to Carlson Family Dentistry for regular appointments.
