Regular dental health checks are an essential part of looking after yourself. You should have an assessment at an interval that reflects your owns risk factors, not just every 6 months.
For some patients this will be as little as every two years, for others who are high risk may be every 3 months.
Routine examinations are far more than just checking your teeth. We check your teeth, of course, and any restorations you may have but in addition we check all the following: oral tissues, gum check (periodontal screening), jaw joints (TMJ), lymph nodes, aesthetics assessment.
