How Often Should I See The Dentist?

Seeing the dentist isn’t most people’s idea of a good time, but regularly visiting a dentist like Dr. Bryan Packard is the best way to prevent common dental health issues like cavities, and ensure that your mouth stays healthy. Wondering how often you should come to Precision Dental for an appointment? Find out now. 

We Recommend That Our Patients Schedule Six-Month Dental Visits 

Our recommendation at Precision Dental is the same as the ADA and all other major dental organizations. Patients should see Dr. Packard and our team for treatment every six months to protect their dental health.

At your visit, one of our hygienists will perform a quick oral exam and take x-rays to look for hidden oral health issues. Then, your teeth will be scaled to remove plaque and tartar, buffed with a gritty toothpaste, and flossed to remove any remaining debris.

Then, Dr. Packard will take a look at your mouth and your x-rays, and discuss any potential issues with you so that you can schedule any follow-up care that you may need.

Six-month visits allow Dr. Packard to look for any changes in your oral health and identify potential issues like gum disease and tooth decay before they cause serious damage to your oral health, giving you peace of mind. Schedule your next consultation now to get the care you need.

Why Should I See Dr. Packard Every Six Months For Preventive Care?

Not convinced that you need to see Dr. Bryan Packard at Precision Dental every six months to protect your oral health? Here are a few more benefits of twice-yearly visits for preventive care.

  • Save time & money – Catching oral health issues like cavities early means that you can usually avoid complex and expensive treatments like fillings, crowns, or even root canal therapy for an infected tooth. This saves you both time and money. 
  • Make the most of dental insurance – Most dental insurance plans cover two dental cleanings and oral exams each year, as well as a set of x-rays, at no out-of-pocket cost. If you have dental insurance but you’re not seeing Dr. Packard twice a year, you’re not making the most of your plan.

  • Keep your smile bright – Regular teeth cleanings remove plaque and tartar that you can’t eliminate with at-home brushing alone, so your smile will look brighter and feel cleaner after your visit at Precision Dental.

  • Get additional preventive treatments – After your appointment, we can provide further preventive care like dental sealants or fluoride treatments if Dr. Packard believes these treatments are necessary to protect your oral health.
