How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends visiting the dentist every six months for professional cleanings and examinations. These visits are an essential part of maintaining optimal oral health and, when combined with proper at-home care, can help ensure your teeth remain healthy and attractive for a lifetime.

Bergenfield dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter suggests our patients schedule biannual visits in advance to ensure these routine checkups are easily maintained. We always provide plenty of opportunity to reschedule when needed, but can most easily guarantee you a preferred time when appointments are booked a few months out.

Your twice-yearly visits to our office allow our hygienists to fully clean your teeth and gums – even removing plaque from below the gum line to help prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral health issues. These visits also allow Dr. Perlmutter to thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and oral tissue for signs of problems and to provide swift treatment when issues are detected.

To schedule your next appointment with Dr. Perlmutter, please contact Dumont Cosmetic Dental online or by calling 201-384-9292 today. We welcome patients living throughout Bergen County at our centrally located Dumont office.
