How Often Should I Visit My General Dentist?

Providing better smiles to Rochester, Webster, Greece, Fairport & Nearby Areas of New York

A man displays the rewards of regular general dentist visitsThe American Dental Association recommends that every day, you brush your teeth twice and floss once.  Assuming you meet these basic requirements, and suffer no discernable dental issues, is it really necessary to visit your Greece general dentist twice a year for routine dental check-ups? The answer is yes!

Regular dental exams don’t just help keep your teeth clean, they give your dentist a chance to evaluate the current state of your oral health, and identify emerging concerns, such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • TMJ
  • Obstructed airways that cause sleep apnea
  • Oral cancer

Catching symptoms early can help save you money and avoid discomfort.  Visiting Dr. Sussman or Dr. Pogal twice a year helps prevent small problems from becoming major issues.

Neglecting your teeth, whether from poor oral hygiene or an inadequate number of dentist visits, can have a detrimental effect on your oral and general health. Some concerns include:

  • Tooth loss
  • Bone loss
  • Stroke
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes

Our Greece general dentist is committed to providing you with the exceptional dental care you deserve. Don’t put off another appointment until next year, or wait until a serious dental crisis develops.
