How often should I visit the dentist?
Generally speaking, it is recommended that you visit your dentist/hygienist every 6 months for a general dental examination and scale and clean appointment. However, we are all individuals which means our individual requirements as a dental patient differ from person to person so some people may require more or less frequent visits.
Here’s what’s involved in a general 6 month check and clean appointment:
Some people are more prone to gingivitis and gum disease and this can be due to many factors such as genetics, oral hygiene levels, smoking and diabetes, to name a few. Therefore, for some, we may recommend more frequent visits to the dentist than the usual ‘6 monthly visits’ to conduct more frequent scale and clean appointments to help to maintain healthy gums.
Other people, who have excellent oral hygiene levels through excellent brushing and flossing techniques and excellent gum health with low tooth decay risks may require less frequent scale and clean appointments. Your dentist will be able to determine what frequency is right for you and your oral health.
