After fear of the dentist, lack of time is probably one of the most common reasons many people state for skipping regular dental exams and family dentistrycheck-ups. For a family (of any size) with competing schedules and needs, getting to the dentist at least once a year can seem downright impossible. But prioritizing preventive dental care is essential for maintaining your family's oral health and preventing gum disease, the most common cause of tooth loss in adults over 30. Dr. Michael and Dr. Shora Farivari, a team of dentists in Hanover, MD, recommend setting aside a date once a year to get to the dentist for a check-up and professional dental cleaning.

Whether you need to have a cavity filled or would like to improve your smile with a professional teeth whitening treatment, a family dentist can help. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that healthy adults visit the dentist every six months to a year for preventive care. For children, dentists recommend scheduling their first appointment by age one, or six months after the first tooth has erupted.

Plan for a Dental Emergency

In addition to preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services, it is important for families and individuals to have a plan in place in case of a dental emergency like an infection or a traumatic accident that loosens or completely knocks out one or more teeth. As a rule, pain is generally considered to be a sign of a dental emergency. Knowing the procedure for setting up a dentist appointment in an emergency can save precious time, and help to save the tooth.
