We encourage our patients to attend routine examinations as recommended by their dentist.
At a routine dental check up, your dentist will check the health of your teeth, gums and soft tissues, including oral cancer screening. Your dentist may need to take x-rays of your teeth.
Each time you attend a routine examination your dentist will assess how often you will need to be seen, this can vary from every three months to once every two years.
