For most of us, scheduling a dental visit is not on our annual “to do” list unless we are in severe dental pain. The American Dental Association advises biannual visits; however, according to Dr. Matt Hookom, “95% of the population are at a higher risk for oral disease and should have more dental checkups than what is recommended.”
Do you…. smoke or chew tobacco? Consume alcohol? Have diabetes? Pregnant? Have periodontal and/or gum disease? Poor oral hygiene? Heart disease? High blood pressure?
If you answered yes, to any of the above and have medical conditions that are not listed here; these complications are factored and taken into consideration by your dentist, when deciding how often you need dental cleaning and a checkup.
