How often should I go to the dentist?
You should see a dentist regularly for routine check-ups even if you are not experiencing any problems with your mouth or teeth. Attending regularly helps you and your dentist to keep your mouth, teeth and gums in good health and pain free. Your dentist will tell you how often you will need a routine check-up. The clinically recommended maximum intervals are up to 24 months for adults and up to 12 months for children. Within these guidelines, your dentist will recommend a recall interval for you based on his or her assessment of your current dental health.
