Dental Check Up ? How Often?

Categories: Family Dentistry

When is the last time you had a dental checkup with your family dentist? Most people in the Arlington area between the ages of 25 and 85 need a dental checkup every six months. If you live in Arlington and are at higher risk for oral diseases, you should have your teeth checked every four months, or at least three times a year.

Come into our office, located at 909 W Mitchell St in Arlington, or give us a call to make a dental appointment. You can visit our website at for more information.

Most people in our Arlington community are in a medium to low risk category. However if you use tobacco or alcohol, eat a lot of sugar in your diet (including lots of soda), or have poor oral hygiene habits, you are likely in a higher risk category and should have your teeth checked right away.

I look at a lot of factors to determine your personal dental hygiene, and your dental outlook for your future. I want you to have the healthiest smile possible so that you can enjoy your teeth for many years without significant problems. If you live in the Arlington area and are ready to have your teeth checked, please give Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry a call.

Our warm and friendly staff will be ready to get you started with a dental checkup. During your appointment, you may consider taking advantage of our cosmetic dentistry treatments such as Zoom teeth whitening or straightening your teeth with Invisalign invisible braces.

Talk to you soon.
