How Often Should I See The Dentist?

You should see a dentist like Dr. Wesley Wise every six months for a teeth cleaning and oral exam. Regular, twice-yearly appointments at the office of Wesley C. Wise, DDS & Assoc., LTD are essential for a number of different reasons. 

Read on to see why your six-month visits are so important, or contact us now to schedule a consultation in Oak Park now. 

1. Six-Month Visits Prevent Gum Disease, Tooth Decay & More

While great at-home dental care is the most important step for preventing gum disease and tooth decay, it can’t eliminate the risk of these issues entirely. 

In fact, it’s common for plaque and tartar buildup to occur even if you’re taking great care of your mouth, which can result in an elevated risk of oral health issues.

If you see the dentist regularly, you can ensure your mouth is clean and healthy, and identify potential signs of decay and gum disease before the issue becomes serious. 

2. Getting Regular Preventive Care Helps You Save Money

If you’re on a tight budget, you may not be sure if seeing the dentist every six months is a great idea. But in fact, six-month visits to our office are the best way to save money by preventing common dental health issues!

If you have dental insurance, your six-month visits will likely be completely free, and even if you don't have insurance, preventive dentistry at the office of Wesley C. Wise, DDS & Assoc., LTD is very affordable.

In fact, by seeing a dentist regularly, you can eliminate your risk of gum disease and cavities, which will require expensive treatments like periodontal care or dental fillings and crowns. In the long run, paying for preventive care every 6 months will save you a lot of money. 

3. Your Smile Will Always Look Its Best With Routine Dental Care 

With regular six-month cleanings, you can remove surface stains on your teeth and clean away plaque and tartar, which leaves your teeth looking their best, and helps you feel proud of your smile. 

In turn, this boosts your self-confidence when you eat, speak, smile, and laugh around others. And if you’re still not feeling great about your smile, a six-month appointment is also a great time to discuss cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Wise

4. You’ll Get Peace of Mind After Your Six-Month Appointment

When you get regular preventive care, you’ll know that your smile is healthy and free of any common oral health issues like cavities and gum disease. At our office, we also offer oral cancer screenings as part of every six-month appointment, which further enhances your peace of mind.
