How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?

As a rule of thumb, you should go to the dentist at least twice a year for a routine exam and cleaning. However, depending on your oral health, you may need more visits. People who keep up with regular oral hygiene habits should go to the dentist every six months. This ensures that their teeth stay healthy and prevent the need for complex procedures later on. Those with other problems like periodontal disease should get checked more frequently.
