How often should you see your dentist?

How often should you see your dentist?

Ans. The thumb rule says, visit your dentist in every six months. If you do not have any dental or associate problem, visit at least once a year, while people have oral issues, should go for an oral checkup every 5 to 6 months.

Even though, you always take care of oral hygiene, but home care is not always enough. Dental cleaning or scaling is necessary for the removal of plaque and tartar buildups. This should be done by a dentist or dental hygienist. Most of the dental problems are noticed when there is pain, swelling or other symptoms, but the fact is that dental problems do not happen overnight. They develop slowly. And with routine checkups dentist will find and catch these problems at very early stage and do preventive and corrective treatments to protect the tooth from painful treatment.

People with various health issues may have tendency to develop the dental diseases. These are:

  • Hormonal changes can increase the risk of dental problem in pregnant women.
  • Diabetic patients are very prone to gum and dental disease.
  • In cancer patients, teeth stain problem develops easily.
  • People with low immunity.
  • Thick saliva or dry mouth can lead to dental problem.

Routine visit to the dentist should not be ignored, as it leads to more serious health problems, including heart and brain infections.
