How Often should I Visit the Dentist?
For one reason or another, visiting the dentist seems to fall to the bottom of many a to-do list. But seeing your dentist for a regular cleaning and checkup is as easy as picking up the phone or logging onto our Bright Smile Dental Care website. Even better, schedule your next appointment after the hygienist has completed your cleaning, and then put it in your calendar.
We usually recommend that patients who are in good health and don’t suffer from periodontal disease visit our Beaverton office twice a year. A twice annual checkup and cleaning is a key supplement to your normal daily brushing and flossing routine and helps keep your teeth and gums healthy.
While you’re here, Dr. Negru will also look for other problems that could be causing you trouble now or potentially down the road. We screen for a variety of conditions, including
- Cavities and decay
- Oral cancer
- Gum disease
- Cardiovascular disease
If you suffer from advanced gum disease or other oral health conditions, you may need to visit Dr. Negru more frequently. We will advise you on the schedule that’s right for you.
If you’ve been putting off your next visit to the dentist, now is the time to get back on schedule. Please contact Bright Smile Dental Care today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Negru. We serve patients in the Beaverton, Oregon area.
