How do I know when it’s time for a checkup?
The recommended time for a dental check-up is once every six months. When you come in to visit us, we will examine your mouth, and we may decide it’s necessary for us to see you more frequently.
The reason regular check-ups are so important is because you may not be able to spot any problems at home; however, we can take a close look at your mouth, teeth, and gums to determine if something is wrong and catch it when it's still in the early stages. Many times, an infection occurs or a disease develops without any warning signs.
Not only will we check for gum disease, but we’ll make sure your gums are up to par, and we will clean the plaque and tartar in your mouth. We’ll also review your brushing and flossing techniques.
We can also see your children as soon as their baby teeth have emerged. We recommend that you bring your child with you to your appointment when they’re about three years old so that they can become familiar and comfortable in the dental office environment. By age four or five, they can begin to have their regular hygiene check-ups.
