Did you know…that the American Dental Association recommends that every American visit a general dentist a minimum of one time every six months? Doing so can aid in the detection of decay, oral disease and other dental health problems before the progress and become severe. If you are at risk for certain complications or have a history or periodontal disease and advanced decay, you may need to visit your general dentist on a more frequent basis. Patients who visit their dentist regularly and as recommended are more likely to retain their natural teeth and enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to visit a general dentist?
Everyone should see a general dentist for routine checkups and cleanings, even if they do not currently have any signs of dental problems. Preventive visits can help minimize the chance of gum disease and decay. It also is important for any other oral health issues in the early stages to be caught for expedient treatment.
What should I expect during my dentist visit?
During regular cleanings, exams and consultations, you will meet with our hygienist for a thorough dental cleaning. A periodontal exam is performed to check the health of your gums and any tartar and plaque is removed. If needed, x-rays will be taken of your mouth that will be reviewed before your exam. Your dentist will perform a physical exam of your teeth and go over any issues found during your consultation.
Are there any special instructions I need to follow after seeing my dentist?
Your dentist will discuss any changes that are needed in your regular home dental care to obtain the best oral health. If treatment is needed, follow-up appointments will be scheduled to address dental issues.
