Dental Check Up: How Often?

When is the last time you went to the dentist? For the best in dental health, you should go every six months here at Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium. If you have a higher risk for oral diseases, we advise you to receive an examination every four months.

Know The Risk Factors For Oral Problems

Most people are in a medium to low risk category for dental problems. However, if you use tobacco or alcohol, eat a lot of sugar, have an eating disorder, have poor oral hygiene behaviors, or suffer from medical conditions that influence your mouth, you are likely in a higher risk category. It is vital to your dental and physical health to have your teeth checked soon.

The case for good dental health just keeps getting stronger. The state of your mouth tells us a lot about the state of your overall health; it’s a window into what it happening in the rest of your body.

The importance of brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day has never been clearer. Ignoring it allows plaque to build up along the gumline, which creates an environment for additional bacteria to accumulate between your gum and teeth, which can develop into gum disease – the leading cause of tooth loss.

At Dr. Steven W. Haywood in Timonium, we encourage all our patients to brush and floss twice a day. Your dental health is important to us. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today.
