Dental examinations

Most dental check-ups are recommended six-monthly, however if your dentist deems you are low risk for dental decay and gum disease you may need to be seen less frequently – yearly or eighteen-monthly.

Regular dental visits are an important part of your oral care. During your check-up, your dentist will check for gum disease, tooth decay and also do an oral cancer screening. They may take some digital x-rays if necessary. Dental check-ups can catch issues before they develop and cause a problem.

Your oral health has an effect on your physical health and dental check-ups are the simplest way to stay on top of your oral health.
