The Importance of Regular Examinations

Exams are an importance measure to ensure that we can detect any problems with your oral health, before it causes permanent damage. They can also give you peace of mind, by knowing that your daily oral health routine is sufficiently caring for your teeth and gums.

We recommend having a full dental exam every 6 months if you’re oral health is good. Although, if you haven’t seen a dentist in a long time, or if you’re experiencing problems, it’s possible that you’ll need to visit every 2-3 months. This frequency will vary depending on each person’s situation, however our team will determine how often we need to see you in the best interest of your oral health.
