How often should I have a dental check-up?
Every two years? No, wait, every six months? The truth is, it's different for everyone. Many assume you should visit the dentist for a check-up roughly every six months. But in reality, how often you need to visit the dentist varies from person to person.
We all know someone who hasn’t seen the dentist in years and ‘got away with it', then, on the other hand, we know a person who’s always needing dental work done.
It's all based on individual recommendations. After each visit, your dentist will let you know when you should come for your next check-up. They’ll base this on an analysis of your oral health and future risk of problems. On average, the time between dental check-ups can range from three to 24 months This may change over time as your oral health improves or declines with age.
