Dr. Anakarina DeAngelis is a dentist in Carlsbad, California who works hard to ensure that her patients have the dental care routine that works best for their oral health and wellness. What is necessary for one patient may not be essential for another, depending on their unique dental situations. However, one thing is always important: routine dental cleanings and examinations.
How often should I see the dentist?
The American Dental Association has continually stressed the importance of seeing a dentist at least every six months. This is vital for several reasons. Below are just a few of the reasons why the team at DeAngelis Family Dentistry will encourage patients to see their dentist regularly for examinations and dental cleanings:
What can I expect during routine visits to the dentist?
Making that six-month appointment with the dentist is critical to keeping the smile healthy. Patients will find that these visits are pleasant and pain-free. The dental hygienist will clean the teeth and gums with electronic instruments to ensure the best results. Patients can also ask questions about their oral health and their brushing or flossing habits to discuss ways to better care for the smile between visits. If the dental hygienist notices anything of concern, he or she will relay this information to Dr. Anakarina DeAngelis for further evaluation and a second opinion. During these visits, patients may also have x-rays and photographic images taken for their records and to diagnose conditions that might otherwise be unseen by the dental team.
