Visiting The Dentist

There are many misconceptions surrounding how often patients should visit their dentist. Some people believe that a dental appointment should be made every few months, while others may wait a couple of years before booking in.

The truth is that there is only one person whose recommendation on your recall period should be followed – and that is the dentist who saw you for your most recent appointment.

The amount of time between appointments is determined by your dentist, and the recommendation is made based on a number of factors including past/future treatments, the condition of your oral health, and any cosmetic treatments you may be interested in pursuing.

Your dentist will advise you on your recall period at the conclusion of your dental appointment. You may need to be seen again after a matter of weeks, months, or even up to two years depending on your dentist’s assessment.

If you are unsure about when you need to see the dentist again, all you need to do is contact the practice and ask when you are next due an appointment.

To book yourself an appointment at our practice, please do not hesitate to contact us directly via our website or by calling us at the practice.
