It is very important that the dentist checks your teeth twice a year. In this way you reduce the chance to get problems in your mouth or discover them in an early stage which could make a treatment easier.
What is a general check up?
In a general checkup the dentist will look at your overall dental health. In most cases we advise our patients to see the dentist for a checkup twice a year. In some cases, we advise to come ones a year and we will discuss this during the appointment. Every two years we make Xray’s of the teeth during the general checkup, so we can check for problems in the jaw(bone) and roots.
