How often should I go to the dentist?


It’s not difficult to keep a healthy smile, but you do have to commit to staying current with preventive dental visits. We agree with the recommendation of the American Dental Association to schedule routine exams and cleanings every six months.

Routinely skipping dental appointments results in poor oral health. But when we see you on a routine basis, we can significantly reduce the risk of painful or complicated dental problems from developing.

During these appointments, Dr. King will perform a visual exam and check the condition of each tooth. He also may recommend digital x-rays if you are a new patient or if you are having a problem. If he finds a condition that needs to be addressed, Dr. King will work with you to develop a treatment plan to get your oral health back on track.

A critical part of your routine dental care is professional cleanings by one of our skilled hygienists. A thorough cleaning every six months keeps your gums healthy. But if we find signs of periodontal disease, we will treat it and give you tips for improving your oral hygiene practices.
