How often should you visit the dentist?

Dr Hannah Baek at Healthy Smile Dental, your Woodridge dentist, recommends that adults visit a dentist every 6 months. Patients who are showing the signs and symptoms of gum disease may need to visit the dentist more often. Regular dental visits will help maintain your dental health and allow Dr Baek to identify problems early if they occur.

During this 6 month dental appointment, you will have a dental examination and your teeth will be cleaned. Dr Baek may also recommend that you have dental x-rays or she may recommend a deep scaling and root planing.

If you haven’t visited the dentist since last summer, it’s time for your dental examination and cleaning. Call for your dental appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
