How Often Should You See the Dentist
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 two or three times a year. In four to 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. Las Vegas Dentistry has convenient evening and early morning appointments available to accommodate your busy schedule.
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. Our awesome hygienist will determine your visit frequency depending on your needs. We have some of the most advanced dental technology & products to make your visit efficient and convenient.
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!
