Dental visit frequency
A general check up (every 6-12 months) ensures your dentist detects any problems in their early stages, before they become more severe. Your dentist can suggest prevention strategies or treatment. Treatment in the early stages is generally easier and much cheaper.
Every two years, all children should receive at least one course of general oral health care, including appropriate oral health promotion. Children with greater dental needs should be recalled more frequently.
All adults should receive at least one course of general dental care every three years, on average.

Fever: Chemicals are being released from injured cells, carried from the blood stream into your brain and raising the thermostatic set point to a higher level. If you have your thermostat in your home raised from 70 to 80 to 85. That will cause the heater to turn on until it reaches that new higher set point. Leukocytic pyrogen and prostaglandins act on the hypothalamic neurons, the thermostatic center of your brain, causing an increase in the thermostat set-point.
The classical febrile response (Fever)
Below you see a graph with the X-axis being time and the Y-axis as temperature. This graph shows two lines. A dashed line and a solid line. The dashed line starts out at 37°C (98.6°F) and that’s the set point. We said your actual body temperature oscillates around that because your body doesn’t activate heating or cooling mechanisms until the temperature goes below or above the set point, respectively.
The onset of fever
We said interleukins and prostaglandins raise the set point. It’s generally believed that the greater the injury, the more of these chemicals are released and the greater the set point is...
