Wondering how often you should see Dr. Troy Babb for preventive dentistry in Pineville? Find out now in this blog from Pineville Family Dentistry, and make sure you’re getting the care you need for a healthy mouth and a bright smile.
For years, the ADA’s recommendation has been to see a dentist for an oral exam and teeth cleaning every six months, and that’s our recommendation at Pineville Family Dentistry, too. You should see Dr. Babb twice per year to have a comprehensive teeth cleaning and oral exam.
Regular teeth cleanings help remove plaque and tartar, keeping your smile bright and healthy. And with frequent oral exams from Dr. Babb, you can learn more about your oral health, catch potential issues like cavities and gum disease early, and get peace of mind, knowing that your smile is healthy.
In some cases, you may need to see Dr. Babb more frequently. If you have gum disease or a high risk of cavities, for example, 3 or 4-month intervals may be more appropriate. Dr. Babb will discuss this with you during your appointment if he believes you could benefit from more frequent visits to Pineville Family Dentistry.
If you only see the dentist once every six months, how can you make sure your smile stays healthy? Good question! Here are a few helpful tips to ensure you maintain your oral health between visits to Pineville Family Dentistry.
