  2. How often should I have a dental check up?

    You should aim to visit your dentist every 6 months for a general dental check up, even if you don’t see a problem with your dental health. People who have dental problems may be recommended to visit more frequently – this can be discussed with your dentist during your appointment.

  4. What to expect in a routine dental check up?

    During a routine dental check-up, you can expect several key procedures aimed at maintaining your oral health. The dentist will begin by examining your teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues. X-rays may be taken to detect hidden problems such as cavities or issues below the gum line. Your dentist may assess your bite and jaw alignment, as well as screen for oral cancer. Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss any concerns or questions you may have about your oral health or dental treatment options with your dentist.

  5. Does dental check up include cleaning?

    Your routine check-up with your dentist does not include teeth cleaning. Your dentist will refer you to the hygienist for regular cleaning and create a treatment plan for how often you need to be seen by the hygienist depending on your oral health.

  6. What is a routine dental check up?

    A routine dental check-up is a preventive dental appointment aimed at maintaining your oral health. Depending on your oral health and treatments needed, your dentist will recommend you visit every six months, but this can be more or less depending on your individual needs.

  7. What is the difference between a dental cleaning and a check up?

    A dental cleaning involves removing plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, while a check-up assesses your overall oral health with an examination by the dentist.

  8. How long does a dentist check up normally take?

    Routine dental check-ups range from 20 to 30 minutes depending on your dentist along with your individual needs.
