How often should I visit my dentist in Seymour?

Preventive dental visits are the key to maintaining your oral and overall health. These visits help protect you from gum disease that impacts your general health by contributing to inflammation in your body that causes problems like:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Dementia
  • High blood pressure
  • Low birthweight babies
  • Stroke

Patients managing gum disease may need additional cleanings throughout the year to keep their condition under control. Your Seymour dentist and hygienist will work together to determine how often you should have your teeth cleaned.

Healthy patients can visit their dentist every six months for preventive teeth cleanings and checkups. Our dentists will screen you for problems like tooth decay and gum disease during these visits. The earlier we can detect these concerns, the better your chances are of successfully treating them.

Our dentists will also screen you for oral cancer during your preventive exams. Did you know that approximately 11,000 people will die due to oral cancer this year? Unfortunately, oral cancer is often left undetected, which means it progresses and becomes more dangerous before it's ever found. Detecting oral cancer early gives you the best chance of treating it and beating it.
