...Only a dentist is qualified to decide how often patients should be seen for routine checkups and cleanings
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 04, 2016
According to a recent article published January 21st on Liberty Voice, while most people are advised to see their dentist once every six months for a cleaning and checkup, depending on a patient’s individual needs, appropriate dental care may require more frequent visits.
Dr. Farzad Feiz, head dentist at Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care, notes that for patients with a history of gum disease or gingivitis who inadequately carry out their oral hygiene routines, more frequent visits to the dentist may be necessary. Additionally, the dental center notes, that even if a patient thoroughly maintains proper dental health through strict flossing and brushing, only a dentist is qualified to decide how often patients should be seen for routine checkups and cleanings. Furthermore, the dental practice stresses the importance of preventative care, which can help a family avoid more costly and extensive procedures in the future. Calabasas Dental Group and California Dental Care note some of the most prominent benefits families can expect from preventative care:
Better breath – Excellent oral hygiene may be the best way to protect tooth and gum health, but it can also maintain one’s social standing. Many people in social situations report the need to take a step back from an individual whose breath is less than inviting, and this may serve a reminder to maintain one’s brushing and flossing routines. Although this condition, also known as halitosis, can be a symptom of a more serious medical or dental condition, the causes are generally minor and the symptoms can be mitigated with the application of brushing and flossing.
Preventing Gum Disease – Also known as gingivitis or periodontal disease, this condition begins with a build-up of plaque which can occasionally lead to tooth loss in adults. Fortunately, the dental care center notes, with a thorough commitment to dental hygiene which includes brushing and flossing multiple times a day, patients can generally keep the condition in check and even reverse its effects. In the long run, they note, because routine cleanings and exams are rarely overly expensive, maintaining excellent dental health can end up saving patients a great deal of money.
