How Often Should You Visit the Dentist?
Visiting the dentist should be part of everyone’s regular healthcare routine. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that adults and children visit the dentist at least twice a year for a professional cleaning and checkup.
Younger children, those with certain medical conditions, and people with a greater risk of oral health problems may need to visit the dentist more often than every six months. Other factors, such as smoking, poor oral hygiene, and a history of cavities can increase the likelihood of gum disease or other oral health issues.
