How often do I need a dental check-up?

For optimal oral health, we recommend visiting your dentist every six months for a check-up and clean. If we can detect dental problems early, we may provide less invasive and less expensive procedures.

However, we constantly tailor a treatment plan to an individual patient, so if you have gum problems or a high decay rate, we may recommend you visit us every three or four months.

X-Rays Are an Important Part of Oral Health Maintenance

X-rays alert your dentist to fundamental problems that we can’t see with the naked eye. Without x-rays, we can check only 50 per cent of your tooth surface – cavities under fillings could lie undetected until it’s too late. We recommend that we use screening Bitewings every two years and take large OPGs (panoramic radiographs of the entire mouth) every five years.
