Regular dental checkups and cleanings are an essential part of maintaining a healthy mouth. We recommend getting an exam and cleaning every 6 months for typical patients.
Exams consist of the dentist checking your teeth, gums, and other soft tissues of your mouth as well as your head and neck. X-rays allow your dentist to check for decay in places they otherwise couldn’t see. A leaded apron and thyroid collar help minimize your exposure to very low levels of radiation.
If it’s been several years since your last cleaning, your dentist may recommend a deep cleaning and more frequent checkups. See us often so we can catch problems early!Make an Appointment
