How often should I visit the dentist?
On average, seeing a dentist twice a year works well for many people. Some can get away with fewer visits while others may need to be seen more frequently. People with a high risk of dental disease might need to visit every three or four months, or more. This high-risk group includes:
- Pregnant women
- People with current gum disease
- People with a weak immune response to bacterial infection
- People who tend to get cavities or build up plaque
The schedule for any person may change during a lifetime. In times of stress or illness, you may need more frequent dental visits. Your dentist may help you to fight off a temporary infection or treat changes in your mouth. If you take good care of your teeth and gums at home your dentist may recommend lengthening the time between visits. Ask your dentist the best schedule for your routine dental visits.
