It may come as a surprise, but your dentist doesn’t want you to see them more often than necessary. Between your teeth, gums, and the rest of your oral health, there’s a lot they need to keep an eye on. Each appointment takes time, and each one cuts into the time they can spend with their own families.
But beyond the personal interests of your local dentist, they’ll be eager to educate you on when visits are necessary and when they shouldn’t happen too often. They want you to have a healthy mouth that lasts a lifetime, and they’ll do what they can to help you reach that goal — whether it’s regular brushing and flossing, regular check-ups, or necessary procedures.
When to see your local dentist
An appointment for a routine check-up shouldn’t happen less than once a year. While that sounds like a long time, the checks during this appointment should be brief — enough to get an idea of your progress over the past year and start planning any necessary work. But the actual check should only take a few minutes.
A Dentist Close to Home is Best
If you live in the Chesterfield, Town and Country, St. Louis, Ballwin, and Manchester area, it is wise to choose a local dentist for your family dentist. It will be easier and more convenient for every member of your family to come in for regular examinations and cleanings. Most busy parents don’t need the extra headache of a long commute to a dental appointment. And what if you experience a dental emergency? A local dentist who knows your family is best equipped to handle an unforeseen dental need.
