Local Dental Office Offers Guidelines on How Often Adults Should Visit the Dentist, Anchorage, Alaska

Remember how easy it was when you had someone scheduling your dentist appointments for you? You never had to think twice about how often you should be going! But as an adult, do you know how often you should visit the dentist’s office? Since there’s no one-size-fits-all answer for everyone, the experts at Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, AK, are here to outline a few general guidelines.

No matter how old you are or what condition your teeth are in, it’s recommended you visit the dentist at least twice a year for a regular checkup. During the checkup, your dentist will perform routine services to help keep your smile healthy and clean, including a professional teeth cleaning. The dentist will also check for cavities or any other dental problems you may have.

Don’t delay or put off appointments if you’re noticing any pain or suffer from a chipped tooth. The truth is the longer you wait to schedule a dentist appointment if you notice a significant change or pain, the worse the problem will become.

Even if you’re adhering to the recommended biannual teeth cleaning visits and you’re not experiencing any other dental health issues, there are still a number of other reasons you may need to visit the dentist more often. Pregnant women, smokers, cancer patients, and those with diabetes should all see the dentist more often.
