WHY DENTAL CHECK UPS ARE IMPORTANT
A regular dental check up is important as they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. You should have a regular visit at least every 6 months or as recommended by your dentist.
There are two parts to a dental visit:
- The check up and xrays
- The clean
During the dental check up, your dental professional will check your overall oral health for any trouble area’s and may take xrays.
During the cleaning, your dentist will remove any plaque and tartar build up and may polish your teeth. A fluoride treatment may also be applied.
Your dentist will place you on their 6 monthly recall system, just so you never forget to have your teeth checked on a regular basis.
