THE SIX-MONTH CHECKUP: STILL THE GOLDEN RULE?

Should everyone get a six-month dental checkup, like clockwork? Or are the rules different for members of the “Look, Ma, no cavities” crowd?

According to Chris Cooper, D.D.S., of A+ Dental Care in Roseville and Lincoln, the twice-yearly checkup is appropriate for the majority of patients. “It allows us (dentists) to really evaluate things on a consistent basis and try to catch problems when they’re small,” he says. 

Example: If a cavity is caught early, it can be treated conservatively. But if a patient waits a few years, he says, “we may no longer be able to fix the tooth with a simple treatment, and may need to do a root canal and a crown—something we wouldn’t have had to do had we seen the patient sooner.”

The six-month rule may not always apply, however. For those whose dental health is at either end of the spectrum—i.e., extraordinarily good (such as the “no cavity” folks) or extraordinarily poor (such as those with periodontal disease)—fewer or more frequent visits may make sense, Cooper says. 

His viewpoint is shared by the California Dental Association, which recommends a twice-yearly checkup—or as often as your dentist suggests.—Cathy Cassinos-Carr
