Why are checkups recommended every six months, even for people with great oral health?

Aside from keeping your teeth sparkling, it is important to catch early warning signs before a problem area can get worse. A cavity can easily be taken care of, but gone unnoticed it can turn into something else quickly.

Keeping a close watch on your teeth and gums through regular cleanings can help avoid periodontal disease. Unhealthy gums are a major warning of problems ahead and the possibility of future tooth loss. This can also be an indication of systemic health problems. In pregnancy, the presence of periodontal/gum disease can affect the baby, possibly causing low birth weight and preterm labor. That’s why regular check-ups are so important for yourself and your family.
