Is it necessary to go to the dentist every six months?
A visit to the dental clinic every six months may seem like a big commitment if you’re healthy. Your good oral health probably has a lot to do with your dedication to the care of your teeth and gums. That is why six-month checkups are so important! Your regular dental exams provide our dentists with an opportunity to look for any changes in your oral health. They provide a comprehensive oral exam, oral cancer screening, and an evaluation of each tooth to help you avoid many common dental conditions that patients experience.
Importance of Preventative Dentistry
Most dental conditions do not display any symptoms until they are well advanced, which can put your oral health at risk and lead to more complex treatment options. At Central Park Dental Clinic, it is our goal to help patients avoid serious oral conditions that lead to tooth loss or gum disease.
In some cases, especially for patients who have had advanced gum disease called periodontitis, we may even recommend that you come back to our dentist in Burnaby, BC every three or four months until your condition is under control.
Our recommendations are customised for your oral health needs because no two patients are alike!
