How often should I visit the dentist?

1 Minute 7th May 2017

This is an age-old question that we’re often asked, but one that has no simple answer! This is because here at Marquess Dental in Anglesey, we treat every one of our patients as individuals, which means there is no blanket approach.

At your initial dental health check with us, we will assess your dental condition by looking at various different factors and taking into consideration any other health issues you may be dealing with. All of this allows us to put together the ideal check-up frequency for you.

Added to that, at each appointment we will always reconsider whether these appointment intervals need tweaking, you may need less or more depending on your oral health condition and other health implications that may crop up.

We also recommend having regular hygiene appointments, which are just as important as your regular dental check ups because they can help to improve your overall oral health. You may find that we suggest seeing the hygienist more often than the dentist, which is completely normal as these appointments can help to keep bigger dental problems at bay!

Budget for your dental care

For some people, the idea of being told to visit the dentist at regular intervals seems too expensive and this causes many to avoid their dental practice entirely. This is quite a short-sighted approach because leaving very long intervals between your visits means you may end up experiencing a problem that could have been caught and treated much earlier on, before it becomes a costly problem!

To help our patients to budget for their dental care, we are pleased to offer dental plans that cover two dental check ups and two hygiene appointments every year as well as worldwide dental emergency insurance and discounts on a raft of treatments should you require them. All of this will set you back just £10.50 per month, making your dental care easier to budget.

If you’d like to find out more about our dental plan, or wish to book a check-up with one of our excellent dentists, just call 01248 787878.
