How often do you need to visit a dentist in Rockingham?
When you start seeing a DCN dentist, he or she will likely recommend that you pay a visit every six months. This is because meeting with your dentist on a semi-annual basis is important for a variety of reasons.
Upon your first visit to a DCN practitioner, you will receive a comprehensive check-up and in some cases a set of x-rays to determine any potential problems. Your dentist will also review your medical history and learn more about you as a patient. You will receive a thorough teeth cleaning, both upon your first visit and for all subsequent hygiene appointments you book with your dentist.
Regular teeth cleanings are important for protecting your oral health. A deep cleaning by a dental professional will remove plaque that may have built up along your teeth and gum line. A lot of plaque can be removed from routine brushing and flossing, but a dental cleaning is often necessary to get into hard-to-reach areas and to remove stubborn spots of plaque. When left on the teeth, this plaque can lead to problems such as gingivitis (the first stage of gum disease) and periodontitis (the second stage).
Semi-annual visits each year are also necessary for spotting problems before they occur. Preventative appointments can help ensure there are no potentially expensive surprises upon your next visit to the dentist.
