How often should you go to the dentist for check-up?

Posted 4 May 2017 in News

Extractions

Many people assume that dental check-ups should be done once every six months, but the truth is that some people need to go more often than that, while others may need to go less frequently. After your dentist examines your mouth and determines your overall oral health, he or she will suggest when you should come next time for your regular check-up. The time between dentist check-ups is variable and ranges from a couple of months to a couple of years, mostly depending on the state of your teeth and gums.

A dental check-up is required so that the dentist can examine you for oral problems and help you to always keep your mouth healthy. If you leave the problems untreated then you can potentially face some painful consequences later.

What does the dental check-up involve?

At the checkup, your dentist first examines your mouth, teeth, and gums. They will ask you about your overall health and whether you have had any problems with your teeth since your last check-up. The dentist will also provide advice for your diet, alcohol and tobacco use, and how to maintain good teeth-cleaning habits. At the end, they will tell you when you should visit again.

Regarding when you should visit your dentist next time, they will suggest a date. It can be in two or three month’s time or maybe in two years. In general, if you have a low risk of developing dental problems then you will wait longer for your next check-up. People that have a good oral health usually need to go to their dentist once in a year. However, those who experience problems need to attend checkups more regularly.

With dental treatments such as teeth cleaning, fillings, taking a tooth out, or some kind of emergency treatment, all these may require more routine check-ups. However, if you are experiencing some problems with your teeth do not wait for your next check-up. Arrange an appointment as soon as you can so that a dentist can attend to the matter quickly.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
