Why should I visit the dentist?
To prevent, detect, and treat any abnormalities or disease that may occur in or around the mouth.
How often should I visit the dentist?
At a minimum, semi annual dental examinations are often recommended, but should be based on individual needs. Some people will need to see the dentist more frequently depending on their increased risks for oral diseases and their dental needs. Make an appointment today to figure out what schedule is best for you.
Why do I need a complete dental examination?
To check soft tissues (oral cancer screening), screen and examine for periodontal disease and cavities, and to chart existing restorations and other tooth conditions. Dental radiographs (x-rays) may be needed to assist the dentist in locating disease that cannot be seen by the eye.
How do I know when it’s time to come in for a checkup?
Your dentist and hygienist will help you understand what recall interval is needed to keep your mouth healthy. We will schedule your next appointment before you leave. We will also send you a reminder card and give you a call.
