General and preventive dental care are absolutely essential for maintaining your oral health in Sorrento Valley. But how often should you see a dentist in San Diego, such as Dr. Victor Tran? In this blog from Origin Dental, we’ll discuss everything you need to know, so read on and get the answers you need.
For decades, the ADA and other dental associations have recommended that patients see a dentist for a teeth cleaning and oral exam every six months, and that’s our recommendation at Origin Dental.
However, there are some circumstances in which you may need more frequent visits to Origin Dental. Patients with gum disease, for example, may need a periodontal maintenance cleaning every 3 months, or people who are at a high risk of cavities may need to have their teeth cleaned and examined every 3 months.
At your first appointment with Origin Dental, Dr. Tran can assess your oral health and recommend the proper appointment interval for your needs.
Seeing the dentist every six months helps you catch potential oral health issues early, avoid further complications, and save time and money.
For example, Dr. Victor Tran may find that you have a very small cavity, and then be able to treat the issue with a filling. If this issue is left unaddressed, the cavity could get worse, requiring a crown or even a root canal.
You’ll also get peace of mind, knowing that your mouth is healthy and free of common oral diseases like tooth decay and gum disease.
Not sure what’s involved in a routine six-month dental visit at Origin Dental? Here’s a brief overview of the process.
