When is My Dentist Appointment?
It’s important to stay on top of your dental health by scheduling regular appointments with your dentist. But when should you make an appointment? What factors should you consider when deciding when to schedule a visit? In this blog post, we’ll discuss the best times to make a dentist appointment and how to ensure that you get the most out of each visit.
How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?
After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next check-up could be as short as three months or as long as two years (or up to 1 year if you're under 18).
Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next check-up. Patients with good oral health will probably need to attend only once every 12 to 24 months, but those with more problems will need check-ups more often. A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental issues and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated usually leads to pain, tooth loss and could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it's best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether. At Chelwood Dental Care, our most popular plan is Denplan essentials which entitle you to two routine checkups per year and two hygiene appointments.

What Should I Expect During My Appointment? Your dentist will typically perform a comprehensive exam of your teeth and gums during your appointment. This includes checking for cavities, examining existing fillings or crowns, assessing gum health, and taking X-rays if necessary. Your dentist may also clean your teeth and provide preventive care such as fluoride treatments or sealants. Depending on what is found during the exam, they may recommend additional treatments such as fillings or root canals. Get in touch with us.
