How Often Should You See Your General Dentist?

A general dentist practices a wide range of dental care and services for patients of all ages. The American Dental Association recommends people visit their general dentist for routine exams and teeth cleanings every six months. Patients with periodontal disease should visit more often, every three months, to maintain their gum health. 

Why Are Dental Visits Important? 

Regular visits to your dentist for dental exams and cleanings are essential to your oral and whole-body health. Many people don't realize this, but the mouth is the gateway to the body, and it directly affects the body's health and vice versa. For example, people with diabetes are more prone to developing cavities. 

Who Needs to Visit the Dentist Frequently? 

Though twice-yearly dental visits are a generally good rule of thumb, some people need to visit the dentist more frequently to maintain their oral health. People with a higher risk of dental disease and other conditions may need to get check-ups every three months or sooner: 

  • People with gum disease
  • Immunocompromised individuals 
  • People prone to plaque build-up and cavities 
  • Pregnant women 
  • Diabetics 
  • Smokers
