How often should I go to the dentist?
We agree with the recommendation of the American Dental Association (ADA) to schedule semi-annual dental visits to maintain good oral health.
Preventive dental visits are crucial if you want a healthy smile. Spacing visits six months apart allows us to stay current with your dental needs and address problems when they are small and easy to treat.
Routine appointments consist of a dental exam and a thorough professional cleaning with one of our hygienists. Your dentist will perform a visual exam and may take x-rays if needed. During your cleaning, your hygienist will check for signs of gum disease and gently remove plaque and tartar that collects on your teeth.
We understand that the idea of dental visits can be challenging for some people. But the result of missed appointments is always poorer oral health and the need for more complicated and costly dental work in the future.
If you are a patient in the 85022 area who is looking for a dentist to handle all your needs, please call Dental Care at Moon Valley. Whether it’s time for your routine appointment or you have fallen a little behind with your dental care, we can make sure that your smile is as healthy as it can be.
