How often Should I Visit My Dentist for a Checkup?

General & Cosmetic Dentist serving Hoboken, Jersey City & Hudson County areas of New Jersey


Life is busy. Between jobs, families, sports, and other activities, it’s often hard to remember everything that needs to be done. But visiting your dentist should be a regular event with the same urgency as tax day or Thanksgiving dinner. If you’re behind on your dental checkups, the Dr. Frank and his team at The Practice at Maxwell Place are here to help.

We recommend that most patients with generally good oral health visit the dentist twice a year for a regularly scheduled cleaning and checkup. Regular dental checkups are key to early detection of oral health issues such as:

With regular dental cleanings, you can avoid the likelihood of developing gum disease, which, in turn, makes you more likely to keep your natural teeth as you age.

And believe it or not, the bacteria present in your saliva can also indicate the early stages of cardiovascular disease. So regular checkups aren’t just good for your mouth; they’re also good for your heart.

If it’s been awhile since your last dental checkup, please contact The Practice at Maxwell Place today to schedule an appointment. We serve patients in Jersey City and Hoboken, New Jersey.
