How often should I come to Reliant Family Dental for examinations?
Part of the care we provide at Reliant Family Dental includes customizing your service based on your needs. Our treatment is never one-size-fits-all because each patient needs something different.
We recommend that you and your family visit our office at least twice each year for routine dental examinations. These examinations allow us to touch base with you about your care, answer any questions or concerns you might have, and perform a thorough examination to make sure your teeth are healthy. With regular examinations, we can catch and treat any developing problems quickly, before they have an opportunity to take hold and cause significant damage.
For some patients, twice a year may not be enough. This is true for patients who suffer from periodontal (gum) disease and are in treatment to improve their health. It may also be true for patients who are experiencing certain medical conditions – such as pregnancy. Hormonal changes can cause changes in your oral health, as well. If you are pregnant, we should check the health of your gums for a common condition known as pregnancy gingivitis. With the proper care, we can protect the health of you and your baby. Gum disease during pregnancy can lead to low birth weight and other complications.
Our elderly patients sometimes require more frequent care. Loss of dexterity due to arthritis and oral conditions, such as dry mouth, can put their health at risk when it is most essential!
