Why are dental check-ups so important?
Routine dental check-ups are important to ensure a patient’s overall dental health, whilst correcting early dental problems and preventing future issues which can be more invasive and costly.
At Alderley Dental we call the dental check-up Active Maintenance because together with you we are actively maintaining excellent dental health care.
Prevention is the most cost-effective foundation for healthy and beautiful teeth. We strongly encourage all our patients to make the every six months appointment commitment. With early detection and remedy of problems, our regular patients spend far less time at the dentist than those who leave visiting the dentist until there is a problem.
Regardless of the procedure, we continually strive to ensure your comfort and safety above all else – working to keep your smiling from year to year.
How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?
Maintaining a healthy smile is easier and more cost-effective than fixing problems. Visits to the dentist twice a year is recommended for the health and beauty of your smile and chewing function, as this is the optimum frequency for us to catch dental problems early and clean your teeth to prevent problems from arising. It can differ with some patients so we will discuss with you if we think you need to visit more or less often.
We recommend twice-yearly dental check-ups for children, teens, adults and seniors - even for patients with dentures. Contact Alderley Dental to arrange your next dental visit.
