How Regularly Should You Visit A Dentist?

Aug 30, 2017

Dental check-ups allow your dentist to look for any potential dental problems so that you can be treated as soon as possible should there be any concerns. During a dental check-up, your dentist will examine your teeth, gums and mouth and ask about your general oral health in order to give you viable advice on how to look after your teeth in order to sustain well maintained oral health.

There are many common misconceptions about how regularly you should visit your dentist, some people say you should see your dentist every six months; some may suffice with fewer visits however some may require more frequent ones. It really depends on the person but some categories that may need to see the dentist more are those deemed as high risk. This includes:


Pregnant women


People with a weak immune system

People with gum disease

People who are prone to cavities and plaque

If you take good care of your teeth, you may be required to visit your dentist less often however it is essential that you still see your dentist regularly. Your dentist can give you a recommendation of how often you need to make appointments based on his evaluation of your oral health.
