Having regular dental checkups offers many benefits. Firstly, you will receive professional cleansing which efficiently removes tartar and bacteria buildup that could further damage your mouth if left untreated. Illnesses can also be detected from early on through regular dental checkups, preventing them from further damaging not only your oral health but also your general well-being. Overall, visiting the dentist regularly helps maintain your oral hygiene and health greatly.

Visiting the dentist once every six months is recommended. This is the ideal frequency for sufficient checkup of your oral health. However, certain cases may require more frequent visits depending on the severity of the condition. Your dentist will let you know when you should come back after your initial checkup.

It is important to take care of your oral health in between checkups. Brushing your teeth twice daily and regularly flossing and using mouthwash is the easiest way to do so. If your dentist had given more specific instructions on what to do, such as taking certain medications, please follow them.

Bad breath, swollen gums, bleeding gums, dry mouth, and difficulty swallowing or moving your jaws are symptoms of several dental problems. Please see the dentist immediately if you are experiencing at least one of these symptoms. Please keep in mind that even if you are not experiencing any of these symptoms, you will still need to visit the dentist once every six months.

Yes, children need regular dental checkups as much as adults. Start taking them to the dentist once their first tooth appears, and then come back every six months for regular checkups.
