Most people who have access to dental care and can afford to pay whatever their medical plans don’t cover go for at least a twice-annual cleaning. I have pretty healthy teeth and gums, but I do have old fillings that one by one need replacing, and if the fillings are too big or the teeth cracked or flawed in some way, that means getting a crown. I have a few, and will likely have more. I don’t mind having crowns, but I surely hate the process of getting one.
No need for the next six months. I got a clean bill of health, everything stable, and I smiled all the way home.
