A: We don’t have a one-size-fits-all recommendation because dental needs will differ on a case-to-case basis. However, regular visits to the dentist helps maintain a healthy smile. According to the ADA, 100 million Americans don’t see the dentist at least once a year. By visiting the dentist at least once a year, you’ll be able to prevent common dental problems from occurring such as cavities – or more serious and expensive problems requiring services such as crowns, bridges or implants. We recommend yearly visits to the dentist for routine checkups, teeth cleanings, or other dental services that may become necessary for maintaining your teeth, gums and mouth.
