How often should I see the dentist?

man sitting outside | Family Dentistry in Chico CA | Dr Daniel D SurhYour oral hygiene starts at home. It's crucial to maintain a regular regimen of brushing and flossing to keep your pearly whites shiny and to prevent tooth decay or gum disease. Seeing a dentist regularly is crucial to discovering oral health issues before they become problems. Gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay are the most common problems that your Chico, CA dentist identifies with patients. This is why we recommend that you see your dentist twice a year. 

Why Can't I Go Once a Year?

Because you and your dentist love to catch up on each other's lives! Apart from your lovely conversation, there's a reason your Chico, CA dentist puts you down for two visits a year. Regular visits help your dentist keep a log of your ongoing oral health and note any changes from your last visit. Plus, regardless of how meticulous you might be with brushing and flossing, only your dentist can remove tartar and plaque buildup. Your dental visits also keep track of your general health; in many cases, dentists can identify diabetes, heart disease, and other issues!

Taking Care of Yourself between Visits

It goes without saying that in between your two annual visits, it's essential that you brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes. Flossing at least once a day helps remove food debris and plaque. Have you seen your Chico, CA dentist recently? Call us today!
