Need a dental appointment in Cibolo? You may be wondering how often you really need to see Dr. Niraj Patel and the team at Cibolo Family Smiles for preventive care. How often should you get an oral exam, teeth cleaning, and other preventive treatments to keep your teeth healthy? Find out now.
For decades, the American Dental Association (ADA) as well as other national and state dental associations have recommended that patients see the dentist every six months for a teeth cleaning and a comprehensive oral exam.
This guidance has not changed for years because six-month dental visits are the best way to keep your smile healthy. We highly recommend that all of our patients at Cibolo Family Smiles come to see us for a consultation at least once every six months, and some patients can benefit from more frequent preventive dentistry visits.
Not sure that a six-month dental visit is really necessary? Here are just a few of the advantages of seeing Dr. Patel for a consultation every six months.
The most common scenario in which you’d need preventive care more frequently than every six months is if you have gum disease. Patients who have gum disease need “periodontal maintenance” every 3-4 months to remove bacteria and keep the disease from progressing. Dr. Patel will discuss this in more detail with you at your appointment if it is necessary to keep your smile healthy.
At Cibolo Family Smiles, Dr. Niraj Patel offers expert preventive care to patients and families all throughout Cibolo.
