The Importance of Visiting the Dentist
 
In Canada, only 67 percent of the population even contacted a Dentist, Dental Hygienist or Orthodontist in 2009, which means that even less people actually visited them.  It’s typically recommended that one should visit the dentist at least twice per year.
 
This is however, a minimum recommendation for people who are in good oral health. People who have dental issues are recommended to make more frequent visits.
 
When you visit the dentist, your dentist can educate you to look after your oral health properly while in between visits, and also do a proper cleaning where they remove any plaque or tartar, polish your teeth, and check for cavities. Another important thing we will do at each checkup is look for signs of oral cancer. It’s estimated that in 2015, 4400 Canadians will be diagnosed with oral cancer, so by visiting the dentist, your chances of  an early diagnosis is much greater.
