Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I visit the dentist regularly?
It’s more than just a cleaning, regular dentist visits help to catch dental issues before the develop into something more severe. In fact, regular visits may prevent some problems altogether. Dentists also help to catch symptoms of other diseases that occur in the mouth.
My teeth are healthy. Should I really see a dentist?
Yes! Even if you are not experiencing symptoms, dental problems can go undiagnosed without regular dental visits. Good dental health relies on continuity of care to be effective, the longer you go without a dental visit the more risk you face of major dental problems developing.
How often should I schedule dental appointments?
The answer to this question varies from patient to patient. We usually recommend that patients visit once or twice a year, however; some patients do require closer attention and care depending on their dental needs. If you haven’t seen a dentist in over a year, now is the time to get back on track.
What should I be doing to help my dentist better care for my teeth?
Healthy habits are key to good dental health. If you brush twice a day and floss daily, you’re already doing your part. Before you see your dentist, take note of anything out of the ordinary or any questions you may have. The better your relationship with your provider, the better your dental outcomes.
