People with very little risk of cavities or gum disease can do fine seeing their dentist every 6-12 months. Its highly recommended to see a dentist for a scale and clean every 6 months. People with a high risk of dental disease might need to visit every three or four months, or more. This high-risk group includes individuals who are frequent smokers.
While the Brunswick Family Dental Care staff will create a custom-fitted set of dentures that are made to suit your smile, even these will come loose over time. This is purely due to the fact that our gum tissue shrinks and changes over time, meaning that a set of dentures you had fitted 5 years ago might not suit you today.
It might not appear to be a major issue, but even the slightest movement in your dentures can impact the strength of your bite and can compromise the health of the surrounding teeth and gums in the long run.
A regular check-up with our friendly dental practitioners will help to ensure that your teeth and gums stay happy and healthy, and that your smile is always complete, straight and shining. These regular visits also allow our staff to detect any signs of infection or inflammation before they become a painful and costly issue for you.
