Generally, patients are advised to come to Eagle Ridge Dental Care twice a year for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings to help maintain healthy teeth and gums. Some patients may not be as prone to decay and dental disease and may be able to afford a greater length of time between visits. Other patients may be more vulnerable to oral health problems and may require more frequent visits. Patients who are more susceptible to gum disease and tooth decay may need to come in for dental checkups every three or four months. Higher risk patients may include:
- People with current gum disease
- People who tend to get cavities or build up plaque
- People with a weak immune response to bacterial infection
Depending of your particular oral health needs, Dr. Gill will devise a treatment schedule to best ensure your optimal health. Your oral health needs may change throughout the course of your life. For example, patients during times of stress or illness may require more dental attention. Some medications cause dry mouth and can trigger cavities and gum disease if not treated.
No matter what your changing needs may be, Eagle Ridge Dental Care's expert team of specialists can devise a treatment plan to keep you smiling your brightest.
