How often should I see a dentist?


Going to the dentist is important. The basic recommendation is that you should visit a dentist every six months. Studies have shown that people who have no dental problems may not need to go that frequently, probably once a year. Other people with dental issues should have visits to the dentist every 3 or 4 months.
 
Regular exams are important for several reasons. The dentist can check your teeth and determine if they are healthy. They can do cleaning and take care of any problems that may have developed. The regular visit will help maintain good dental hygiene which can prevent problems from occurring. Preventive work can also be done if the need is present.
 
Good dental care reduces issues that can be difficult and expensive to repair. Cleanings are a part of this care. These not only remove stains from the teeth, but they also remove the plaque from the teeth that cause tooth decay and gum disease.
 
Your teeth need to be strong and healthy. This will only happen if you take care of them by brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. Good oral health depends on regular examinations to prevent problems from developing into major issues.
 
If you are having any pain or discomfort in your mouth, it is important that you talk to a dentist. Dental problems can become chronic if not treated. If you are experiencing a toothache, loose teeth, swelling or redness around the gums, difficulty chewing food, or difficulty swallowing you need to see a dentist.

What do I need to bring to my first appointment?


Your first visit to a new dentist can feel unfamiliar. There are usually a few forms that any new dentist will need you to complete. This will help the new dentist to have a better understanding of any health concerns that may impact treatment. The best way to prepare for your first dental appointment is to make sure that you have any documentation that is necessary to answer the questions accurately.
 
There are a few documents that will be helpful to bring to your first appointment. A list of any prescriptions that you are taking and relevant medical history. Previous or current illnesses that can impact treatment or need to be treated. Your dental history is important to share with your new dentist. If you have been referred, bring that along. Bring a list of questions that will help you understand how the dentist operates. Bring insurance cards or information. If you have any dental X-rays, especially if they were taken in the last 6 months.
