Is It Really Necessary to Visit the Dentist Every Six Months?

Visiting your dentist in Rockville is the best way to prevent oral health issues—combined with regular oral care at home, of course! While not every patient will need to come in every six months, we recommend an exam and cleaning at least once a year and more often as recommend by Dr. Nikkhah.

Some patients are predisposed to certain oral health issues and may need a higher level of care and more frequent dental visits, while other patients won’t need to come in as often. However, professional cleanings can be instrumental in keeping your smile healthy and stain-free!

What’s the Best Way to Prevent Tooth Decay and Gum Disease?

Preventing tooth decay and gum disease, two very common oral health issues, begins at home with daily brushing and flossing. You can also eat a diet that’s low in refined sugar with plenty of fruits and vegetables for even healthier teeth!

Regular dental visits will also help you prevent oral disease for a healthy, beautiful smile, as professional cleanings can remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria that are responsible for decay and gum inflammation to prevent more invasive treatments down the line.
