Everyone is unique, so is every mouth
Did you know that well over a 100 million Americans fail to see their dentist each year, even though your bi-annual exam is essential to good oral and overall health?
When you get your dental cleaning, your dentist removes plaque buildup that cannot be done with brushing alone. Further, your mouth is examined for cavities, oral cancer and other issues you may not even know are lurking.
There are people, however, who should visit the dentist more often than every six months. This includes those at greater risk for dental issues, like smokers, those with diabetes, pregnant women, those who have gum disease or immune disorders and those who are predisposed to cavities and plaque.
In these cases, seeing the dentist every three months is a good rule of thumb.
