How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

added on: May 4, 2015

Cedar Rapids dentist Dr. Blain McLaughlin recommends you visit our office every six months for professional cleanings and examinations. These biannual visits allow us to keep your teeth bright and your gums healthy, and to check for early indications of oral health issues that may produce serious problems down the road.

If you are overdue for a dental cleaning and examination, please call Dr. McLaughlin at 319-373-5082 to schedule an appointment today.

Understanding the importance of routine dental checkups, most dental insurance companies offer full coverage for biannual visits. This is because they know regular care can help prevent issues such as tooth decay and infection, as well as gum disease, and will ultimately reduce the necessity for expensive and invasive general dentistry treatments.

During your next appointment with Dr. McLaughlin we would be happy to discuss ways you can maintain these benefits at home by ensuring your daily routine removes plaque and helps prevent oral health issues from occurring in between visits.

To schedule your next appointment with Dr. McLaughlin, please contact Dental Touch Associates today. Our dentist serves Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities from our central Marion location.
