When is the last time you had a dental check-up? At the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria we recommend a checkup an average of every six months. If you have an increased risk for oral diseases, every four months may be better.
If you are considering a dental implant to replace a missing tooth, we will first perform an examination. It’s important to assess your oral condition before we talk about an implant.
Know The Risk Factors For Oral Problems
Most individuals are in a medium to low risk category for dental problems. However, if you use tobacco or alcohol, eat a lot of sugar, have an eating disorder, have poor oral hygiene behaviors, or suffer from medical conditions that impact your mouth, you are likely in a higher risk category. It is critical to your dental and physical health to have your teeth checked without delay.
We evaluate many factors to determine the status of your oral health. We want you to have the healthiest teeth possible so you can enjoy a beautiful smile for life. The philosophy ‘”Ignore it and it will go away,” does not apply to a tooth or gum problem.
