Scheduling routine appointments
It is important for patients to schedule routine evaluations with their dentist for many reasons. First, recall appointments are a great time to connect with your dentist and speak about any dental concerns that may have arisen over the course of several months. It gives you a chance to check in and have the teeth and gums evaluated for any signs of dental decay or periodontal disease. It is also a time to have x-rays completed and enjoy a simple teeth cleaning. This is part of preventative care and can improve the health of your smile over your lifetime.
How often should I visit?
Patients with a healthy smile are encouraged to see their dentist at least every six months for a cleaning and evaluation. However, if patients are in the process of managing a condition such as periodontal disease, they may need to visit more often, preferably every three months, for evaluations. Once the condition is under control, patients can visit twice a year.
What conditions can be noticed during evaluations?
During a recall appointment at the dental office, our team may notice problems such as:
- The development of cavities
- Signs of periodontal disease
- Damage to restorations
- The need for orthodontic treatment
- Oral cancer
Many of these conditions can be safely addressed with early identification and treatment, making it more important than ever to have routine visits with our Glendale dentist, Dr. Karen Baghdasaryan.
