How Often Should You Visit Your Dentist?
The best way to keep up with your oral health is to visit us twice a year for dental cleanings. We can continue to monitor the health of your smile and pinpoint problems early on through this simple screening. Once a year, we will take x-rays of your mouth, which gives us a better idea of the health of your jawbone, nerves, tissue, gums, teeth, and tooth roots. Preventive care is important for everyone, especially children. Children should start seeing their dentist by one-year-old to keep their developing smiles healthy.
At our practice, nothing is more important than providing patients with the care they need and to prevent problems from happening in the future. We want to help our patients avoid the need for restorations and dental procedures that they could have avoided by simply getting routine cleanings and by properly brushing and flossing. We also love educating patients of all ages about proper techniques for brushing and flossing teeth to protect against tooth decay.
