Why do I need to have a cleaning and checkup every six months?

Many patients wonder why their routine teeth cleanings and checkups are so important. Is it really necessary to visit your Fairfax dentist every six months?

The answer is yes – especially if you want to protect your overall well-being.

Science has shown us a distinct connection between oral health and overall health. This stems from gum disease and the bacteria that cause the infection. This same bacteria can enter your bloodstream and travel to other areas of your body where it contributes to the inflammation-causing other systemic issues like:

  • Dementia
  • Heart Disease
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Complications During Pregnancy
  • Low Birth Weight in Babies

One of the best ways to protect yourself from gum disease and other dental concerns like tooth decay and cavities is to visit your dentist consistently every six months for preventive teeth cleanings and checkups.

During your checkup, Dr. Fairfax will screen you for concerns like gum disease and tooth decay while your hygienist removes the plaque buildup that causes these problems during your teeth cleaning.

Preventive teeth cleanings and checkups can often save you time in the dental chair and money when you're able to detect any impending problems as early as possible.
