It has been common knowledge for decades that it is recommended you visit your dentist twice a year for a bi-annual checkup. This allows for you to know whether or not your oral hygiene is up to par and whether your teeth, gums and the rest of your mouth is in good condition. However, just as standard oral health habits are not fitting to everyone, neither is this predetermined schedule for dental visits.
Of course basic practices like brushing and flossing daily are a must for every person who wishes to keep their teeth in the best condition. However, the frequency and veracity required does vary from one mouth to the other. The same can be said about dental visits.
While some people can visit their dentist once a year and have perfectly healthy teeth, others may require three or four visits in a 12-month period.
If you are unsure of how many preventative dentist appointments you should be making, you can always ask your dentist what he/she recommends. The experts at Corsi Dental Associates can tell you the more often you visit us what the state of your teeth and gums is, as well as how your mouth is likely to fare over time based off your oral health routine and habits. Regardless of how many trips you are making to your dentist’s office every year, be sure you are at least making it once. Prevention is the key to having and keeping a healthy mouth for years to come.
