Dr Dental, Seeing a Dentist Twice a Year Maybe Obsolete Advice

01/10/13 9:48 AM

The standard advice about dental care years ago was to  brush and floss your teeth daily and see your dentist at least twice a year.  Brushing and flossing daily for at home oral health care is still good advice, but what about seeing a dentist twice a year?  That may not be sound advice by today standards.

Thought most dental insurance plans may cover for twice a year cleanings there are times when a person should see the dentist more often then just the twice a year standard. For people who have periodontal disease, they may need to see a dentist up to four times a year, Smokers should also visit the dentist more frequently as they may have higher dental and gum risks related to smoking.

How do you know what is best for you?  Talk to your dentist. A dentist will be able to examine you, then considering your dental and medical history will be able to suggest how often to visit them based on your own oral health needs.
