The best and easiest way to help keep your mouth healthy is to visit your dentist for your dental exams & cleanings. These appointments are the best way for your dentist to see the progression of your oral health.
We are often asked if the biannual time frame for dental exams is still advantageous. For most people, twice a year is a perfect time frame, but it may not be ideal for everyone. For those that are prone to cavities, have a lot of dental work or have a condition like gum disease, it can be advisable to bump up your exams and cleanings to three times a year. Adversely, for some patients with a long track record of amazing oral health and no cavities, they may be able to reduce their visits to once a year.
