Simply adhering to a consistent daily oral care routine is not enough to keep one's oral health up to par. It is vital to visit your dentist on a consistent basis for a deeper professional cleaning. For most patients, we recommend a routine examination and cleaning every six months. If we are trying to treat a specific condition or perform restorative work, then you may need to be seen more frequently, and we will discuss this with you. Keep in mind as well that if you are feeling pain or discomfort in between visits to make an appointment with our practice right away.
