How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
It is recommended that you visit the dentist for a professional cleaning and examination at least once every six months. Preventative dentistry is an essential factor in maintaining good oral health.
The Importance of Preventative Dentistry
Whenever you are involved in brushing, flossing, and caring for your teeth in a daily manner, you are taking part in the first aspect of preventative dentistry. It is crucial that when you are at home, to practice these important habits since they help keep plaque and tartar from growing.
However, it is not just enough to care for your teeth at home, since there are always deeper problems that your toothbrush or floss cannot reach. We highly recommenced the following:
- Keeping up with your regular dental appointments with Dr. Joshua Miller.
Sadly, so many patients only come to their dentist when they already have a major dental problem, which can have horrific consequences for their oral health. Maintaining your visits at least twice a year actually is far less time consuming and costly in the long run than only coming when you already need a root canal treatment.
What You Can Expect with Our Preventative Care
In addition to keeping regular appointments, there are other key ways of having superb preventative care, and thus keeping a brilliant smile. Here at our office, Dr. Miller also offers patients opportunities to have x-rays and screenings, to make sure no oral cancer has developed. Our ability to perform 3D cone beam scans enables us to get complete pictures of your mouth and ensure its total health.
Simultaneously, you should also practice good habits such as:
- Utilizing a toothbrush with soft bristles and a fluoridated toothpaste at least twice a day
- Keeping a healthy and balanced diet that limits acidic or sugary foods
- Scheduling full dental exams on a routine basis
- Asking about fluoride treatment and dental sealants to keep your teeth healthy
