Since no two people are alike, there is no standard answer to this question. That's why at Edmond Dental Center, we take time to get to know each patient, their past dental history, present condition, as well as future needs and goals. We then customize a treatment plan tailored for each unique individual.
For most healthy patients, Dr. Chandler will typically recommend a routine cleaning and examination every six months to help them maintain excellent dental health.
Studies show that approximately 50% of adults have some form of gum disease, requiring more frequent visits to their Edmond dentist to ensure dental health. With studies linking gum disease to chronic conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, it has never been more important to keep your gums healthy.
Gum disease can be challenging to detect on your own since often it is not painful. While brushing and flossing daily at home can help you maintain a healthy mouth, it is also a good idea to check for tartar, which occurs when plaque hardens. Only your dental hygienist can remove tartar during a professional cleaning.
If you have questions about your dental health and when your next routine visit should be, contact Edmond Dental Center today at (405) 330-4630.
