Do I Really Need To Visit The Dentist Regularly?
The short answer is YES. You have probably heard from someone at some point, be it your dentist, your mom, or the news, that you are supposed to visit the dentist at least twice a year. But why?
It is critical to your overall oral health to visit a dentist for a checkup and cleaning at least once every 6 months. That’s only a visit twice a year to preserve and protect your mouth from decay and infection! When you come into our office for a routine cleaning, you will receive a thorough cleaning that only a professional can give.
There are many advantages to scheduling routine checkups and cleanings with Dr. Parkin at Cheyenne Mountain Dental Center.
