Dental checkups should occur every six months. These general dentistry visits are an essential part of your preventive dental care and can help every member of your family maintain optimally healthy teeth and gums.
Cleanings and Examinations
Your biannual dental checkups are focused on dental hygiene and teeth cleaning. Your visits will include an initial cleaning from one of our experienced dental hygienists followed by a thorough examination from the dentist. We will take x-rays of your teeth to check for problems below the enamel, allowing us to address issues that cannot be seen, but could eventually result in significant problems if not detected and treated early.
While most people find these visits to be quick and comfortable, we understand that others may experience increased anxiety before dental appointments. If this is the case for you, we would be happy to discuss your sedation dentistry options prior to your appointment.
