How Often Should I See a Dentist?

Your teeth and gums need daily care and cleaning to stay healthy and great-looking. But at-home care isn’t enough alone to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. That’s where the dental care experts at Russell Family Dentistry come in.

Under the leadership of Dr. Louis A. Russell, Jr., our team provides a full range of family dentistry care and services for new and existing patients from Tomball, Texas. Could you or a loved one benefit from an appointment with us this summer?

Regularly scheduled cleanings

The team at Russell Family Dentistry typically recommends that adult and pediatric patients come in for twice-yearly regular scheduled professional cleanings. At these cleanings, our staff professionally polish and examine every one of your teeth. We check your gum health and brushing and flossing technique, as well.

Your regular checkups give us the opportunity to take dental X-rays and keep an eye on any potential problems. With consistent professional care and support, you can ensure that your dental hygiene routine is doing what it needs to in order to protect your dental health, and take early action to address any developing issues.

Keeping up with your schedule

Dental health is easier to manage when you keep your regular scheduled cleanings. When dental problems become more advanced, repairs become more extensive, and more expensive.

Life can get busy when you least expect it, and keeping your scheduled dental appointments can pose a challenge from time to time. If you’re behind on cleanings, checkups, or other dental care needs, the team at Russell Family Dentistry can help you get back on track.

If you’re concerned about dental anxiety, let our team know when you make your appointment, and we can work with you to get you through your appointment with as little stress as possible.

Other dental care needs

Some patients might need to visit the dentist more frequently than twice a year. If you need dental restoration procedures like fillings, crowns, or implants, you could need at least one or more additional appointments to complete the repair.

For people with gum disease or other known oral health problems, more frequent professional cleaning appointments may be recommended. More frequent cleanings can stimulate your tissues and slow or stop the progression of gum disease. Dr. Russell can discuss the best schedule for your dental health care needs.

When you need the best professional dental care with friendly and compassionate providers, get in touch with Russell Family Dentistry. We can schedule your appointment now by phone, or go online to use our online booking tool.
