How often do I need to see my dentist?

It is a proven fact that your appearance has a great deal of influence on your daily personal and business life. Your smile says a lot about you. A beautiful and healthy smile is one of the most visible features that creates positive first impressions and portrays an image of confidence, reliability, self-worth, and responsibility to everyone around you. With a healthy smile and mouth we set the parameters for a healthy body as well.Seeing your dentist twice a year is the best way to ensure good oral health.

These regular visits to your dentist are the key to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. During these visits at our practice, a cancer screening of the head and neck and oral cavity is performed, cavity detecting pictures are obtained, and your teeth are cleaned professionally as needed. Tooth decay and gum disease are the biggest risks for adults who do not receive regular dental care. The U.S. Surgeon General’s 2000 report,
“Oral Health in America”,  states that there are links between gum disease and health problems such as Diabetes and low birth weight babies, premature birth, and heart disease, among other conditions.
