Why do I need to come to the Dentist twice a year?

Regular dental cleanings every six months are recommended to help maintain good oral health and prevent various dental issues. Here are a few reasons why you should have a dental cleaning every 6 months:

  1. Prevent Cavities: Regular dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, which are the primary causes of tooth decay and cavities.

  2. Prevent Gum Disease: Gum disease is a common dental problem that can lead to tooth loss. Regular cleanings can help remove plaque and bacteria from your gums, preventing gum disease from developing.

  3. Detect Dental Problems Early: During a dental cleaning, a dentist or dental hygienist can detect early signs of dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, oral cancer, and other oral health issues. Early detection can help treat the problem before it gets worse.

  4. Freshen Your Breath: Regular dental cleanings help to remove bacteria and plaque that cause bad breath, leaving your mouth feeling clean and fresh.

  5. Save Money: Regular dental cleanings can help prevent costly dental procedures such as fillings, root canals, and other more expensive treatments.

Overall, regular dental cleanings every six months can help maintain good oral health, prevent dental problems, and save you money in the long run. It's essential to have a dental check-up with your dentist regularly to ensure your teeth are healthy and prevent any dental issues from arising. At Kinston Smiles Family Dental we recommended twice a year check up to promote preventative care.
