Routine Dental Checkup

dental checkup

There’s nothing “routine” about a routine dental checkup. Although these intermittent visits seem like a normal, everyday activity, they’re integral in promoting good oral health for decades to come. When you incorporate our onsite CBCT (in dentistry) and 3D imaging equipment, we can map out your care for a precise and predictable dental implant experience.

What most people don’t realize is that by keeping routine dental checkups, we can prevent major dental needs like:

  • Tooth decay

  • Bone loss

  • Periodontal disease

By equipping you with the resources you need to care for your smile — and routinely assessing your oral health — you can maintain a natural set of teeth for an entire lifetime. Even if your parents lost their teeth at a young age, preventative dentistry can help break the cycle for you and your children.

What happens during a dental check-up?

At each check-up, your dentist should:

  • examine your teeth, gums, and mouth

  • ask about your general health and any problems you've had with your teeth, mouth, or gums since your last visit

  • ask about, and give you advice on, your diet, smoking and alcohol use, and teeth-cleaning habits

  • discuss a date for your next visit

How often should I have a dental check-up?

After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit. The time to your next check-up could be as short as 3 months or as long as 2 years (or up to 1 year if you're under 18).

Generally, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer you can wait before your next check-up. So people with good oral health will probably need to attend only once every 12 to 24 months, but those with more problems will need check-ups more often.

What about dental treatments?

This advice is about routine check-ups only. You may need other appointments for dental treatments such as fillings, teeth cleaning (scale and polish), having a tooth taken out, or emergency treatment.

If you have problems with your teeth between check-ups, contact your dental surgeon to make an appointment. In an emergency outside normal working hours, contact your surgery on its usual number and you will be told how to access emergency dental care.
