If you have questions about your routine dental appointments, then you’re not alone. Many people also have questions, which can lead to feeling unprepared for the visits. Feeling unprepared can increase dental nerves and anxiety, so it’s best to find the answers to your questions as soon as possible. To help you, our dentist, Dr. Kevin M. Altieri, is happy to give you the answers to these commonly asked questions:
Q: How often do I need to attend my checkups?
A: You need to attend your routine dental cleaning and exam appointments every six months. If you are a victim of gum disease, you will need to attend your appointments more often.
Q: How do checkups help me?
A: They deeply clean your teeth and gums, remove plaque and tartar from your smile, remove minor stains from the teeth, strengthen the tooth enamel, ensure you have strong and healthy teeth and gums and more.
Q: Do checkups hurt?
A: Checkups might involve a little bit of pressure, but they don’t typically cause any pain. If you have sensitive teeth, make sure to tell our dental team so we can be extra gentle during your appointment.
