How often should I see a dentist?

Dental Appointments | Royal Oak MIYour Royal Oak dentist (and most dentists) encourage twice-yearly checkups and teeth cleanings for patients of all ages.

Simply adhering to a consistent daily oral care routine of brushing and flossing is not enough to keep one's oral health up to par.

It would be best to visit your dentist consistently for deeper professional teeth cleanings that lower your risks for cavities, gingivitis, gum disease, and oral infections.

We recommend a routine dental examination and teeth cleaning every six months for most patients. However, if we are trying to treat a specific condition like gum disease or perform restorative work, you may need to be seen more frequently. We will discuss this with you following your routine dental checkup. And we are also happy to answer any questions that you might have.

Keep in mind that if you are feeling pain or discomfort between dental visits, it's crucial to make an appointment with our dental practice immediately.
