Although the American Dental Association recommends that everyone over the age of two has a professional cleaning and checkup twice a year, only 64% of adults scheduled an appointment last year. If you are among those who did not see their dentist in Fremont within the last 6 months, you are placing your oral health at risk. It is not uncommon to skip scheduling an appointment because you feel that your teeth and gums are healthy because you brush and floss. As a result, you might feel like you only need an appointment if a problem develops, but this is not the case. If you do not have routine appointments, you are opening the door to dental issues.
