How often should I be seen for examinations and cleanings?
How often you need to visit Blue Bird Dentistry for dental exams and teeth cleanings depends on your current oral health. We recommend twice-yearly preventive visits for many of our patients, but three or four a year is not unusual, especially if we’re trying to control gum disease.
One of the things we will discuss during your first visit is the frequency of your dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Fredericksburg, VA dental office. You will meet with Dr. Elnahass and one of our hygienists, and we'll develop a treatment plan that takes your unique needs into account.
If your teeth and gums are generally healthy, dental exams and cleanings every six months are enough to maintain excellent oral health. For those with gum disease or a history of caries (cavities), Dr. Elnahass may recommend preventive dental visits as often as three or four times a year.
The first step is to call Blue Bird Dentistry to arrange your first visit so we can evaluate your oral health needs. Please call our Fredericksburg, VA dental office at (540) 373-1641 to get started!
