  3. 3. 3Jonathan Alexander Abt Taking care of your teeth and gums doesn’t take much time or require costly tools. At a fundamental level, brushing regularly, flossing and avoiding simple sugars can go a long way towards maintaining oral hygiene. DO YOU NEED A CHECK-UP? Patients often assume that they only need to see a dentist when there is a problem, but some people may need check-ups more frequently than others. Seeing a dentist allows patients to see if any dental issues need to be addressed. Delaying or avoiding treatment can make a problem more difficult to treat later, so it’s better to deal with any issues as early as possible. After seeing a dentist, they will recommend when to come back for another check-up. The time between check-ups can be as short as a couple of months or as long as two years. If you’re gene- rally at a lower risk of experiencing dental issues, the time between check-ups will be longer. It’s important to note that dental check-ups don’t take the place of other appointments for dental treatments such as extraction or fillings, which are scheduled for separately.
