Dental check-ups are an important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy and problem free. On average, we recommend having a check up once a year to ensure that any unseen small problems such as cavities don't end up becoming bigger ones...
What to Expect during your dental check-up
If it is your first visit, there will be a complete review of your dental history. For follow-up visits, the following can be expected:
- A thorough dental cleaning along and below the gum line. This will remove plaque and tartar build up which is effective in preventing cavities and bad breath.
- A complete cleaning and polishing of your teeth
- A complete Dental check up of your mouth, teeth and gums to look for potential problems.
- X-rays may be taken to ensure there aren't any unseen problems such as gum disease, hidden decay between the teeth, impacted teeth or tooth abscesses, etc.
