Why do I need to get my teeth cleaned every six months?
We all know how important it is to get a physical annually, but why do we need to get our teeth cleaned every six months? Oral health is connected to your overall health so the two go hand in hand. In efforts to have an overall healthy lifestyle, it’s important to mark your calendar to come to see us at the Downtown Dental Group twice a year.
Oral health and overall health are more connected than most people realize. If oral health is not properly taken care of it can lead to issues such as heart disease or diabetes. When given the chance, we can help identify issues before they become dire. It is also not well known, but regular visits to the dentist can allow us to identify oral cancer if the systems are present. These visits give us the best chance to keep both your oral health and your overall health in top shape.
When you get your teeth cleaned every six months, it gives us the opportunity to do a full inspection and stay up During your visits with us, we will review the proper technique to keep your mouth healthy. The combination of twice-annual visits to us and the best home care techniques will keep your pearly whites beautiful for many years.
While twice-a-year visits are the standard of care for most patients, there are cases where more frequent visits are needed. This will be determined at your visit and can be adjusted as needed. We look forward to creating a custom plan for each patient to ensure their individual needs are our top priority.
