If you’re new to the Holden area, seeking a new dentist, or just haven’t seen a dentist for routine dental care in a few years, you may be wondering how often you need to see the dentist. Find out below, and learn what you can expect when you come to Khanani Family Dental for preventive care in Holden.
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients see the dentist every six months for preventive care, like teeth cleanings and oral exams. This is also our recommendation at Khanani Family Dental. Unless Dr. Salman Khanani tells you otherwise, you should plan to come into our office every six months for a consultation.
Regular dental visits let our team track your oral health, identify cavities and gum disease early, and ensure that your smile always looks its best, so schedule your next appointment right away.
Some patients may need to come into Khanani Family Dental more frequently than twice per year. For example, if you have gingivitis or a more advanced case of gum disease, you may require a periodontal maintenance appointment every 3-4 months to halt or reverse the progression of the disease.
After your initial consultation, our Holden dentist will discuss your overall oral health, and he’ll let you know if you have any issues that may require you to make more frequent visits to Khanani Family Dental.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a little while, you may not know what to expect from your consultation at Khanani Family Dental. Here’s a brief overview of what will happen at your appointment with our dental team.
