How often should I see my dentist and why?

We recommend our patients have a routine check-up visit every 3-6 months. Regular dental visits are essential for the maintenance of healty teeth and gums. We assesses the condition of your teeth and gums by:

* Examining the gums
* Looking for signs of gum disease
* Checking for loose teeth
* Looking at the tissues inside of your mouth for oral cancer screening
* Examining your tongue
* Checking your bite
* Looking for visual evidence of tooth decay
* Checking for broken teeth
* Checking for damaged fillings
* Looking for changes in the gums covering teeth
* Evaluating any dental appliance you have
* Taking X-rays

By seeing us on a regular basis and following daily oral hygiene practices at home, you are more likely to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
