Risk Factors for Routine Dental Health Care Visits

Risk Factors

Risk factors that can necessitate more frequent dental visits include smoking and diabetes. In addition those with periodontal disease may need more frequent visits. "The ADA encourages people to work closely with their dentists to identify any potential risk factors that would determine the need for and frequency of follow up visits to enhance the outcomes of preventive care."
