FAQ - How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
Welcome to Vaca and Kirby Dental! Seeing your dentist often is important for a great smile, but how often should you come in for a checkup? Racheal is a dental hygienist that helps our patients at these cleanings and she's got the answer for you. As a general rule, most patients in good dental health should expect to come in for an exam every six months. This period allows your dentist to determine gum health, screen for oral cancer and eliminate the presence of calculus or hard plaque. For patients that have gum disease or other issues, we may need to see you more often to help keep up with recommended treatments. Schedule your next dental exam with us today.
