Unless your dentist recommends a different length of time, patients should plan to go in for routine preventive dental care on a semiannual basis. By planning a checkup at every six months, you consistently enjoy information about the condition of your smile, and an important dental cleaning. This can limit your risk for problems like tooth decay, and it can lead to early detection and treatment for any problems that do arise between visits. If you are someone who has spent considerable time going without these appointments, you can have understandable concerns about the state of your oral health. Your dentist can help you recover from any problems that have developed, and they can help you sustain a healthy smile through future appointments. 

Regular Dental Exams Mean Early Identification And Treatment Of Problems

Regular dental exams make it far less likely you will need any kind of involved restorative work. If your dentist sees that decay has started to become a problem on a tooth, they can address the matter with a dental filling. Without the identification of that threat by your dentist, your cavity may continue to grow until it becomes painful, and you need a root canal treatment.

Planning Restorative Work To Address Multiple Issues

Patients who have several problems with their oral health may be overwhelmed when they think of how much work their smile will require. Fortunately, your dentist can work with you to develop a plan for tackling these oral health issues. By arranging a sequence of treatments, you can regain your healthy smile. Because the restorations your dentist provides can mimic your natural teeth, you will not have to worry about how you look at the end of this work.
