Do I need to see the dentist twice a year?

Generally, yes. Most dentists use the “one visit every six months” rule as a guideline for their patients. We recommend visiting your Manhattan Beach dentist twice yearly for routine smile maintenance.

When you come into our dental office every six months, it gives us a chance to monitor your smile and catch any potential oral health problems before they become dangerous. Having our dental hygienists clean your teeth twice a year is usually frequent enough to get rid of any tartar and to leave your mouth feeling clean and fresh again. Most standard dental insurance plans cover one dental visit every six months, which makes it easy to get the care you need.

For some people, however, the six-month guideline is ineffective. Occasionally, our patients need to see us more frequently, such as every three or four months. Our Woodland Hills, CA dentists see patients who have significant oral health problems or whose poor genetics make their teeth more susceptible to decay more often than they see our “average” patients.
