To ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy and clean, it is essential you attend regular dental check-ups. It is recommended that you visit your dentist every 6 months, or more frequently if your dentist recommends so. If you notice a change in your gums or teeth that doesn’t feel right, you should see your dentist as soon as possible.
What Happens At A Dental Check-up?
During your appointment your dentist will inspect your teeth and check for any cavities and tooth decay. Your dentist will check between and behind your teeth to identify any plaque or tartar build up that can cause infection and gum sensitivity.

Your teeth will then be cleaned and any plaque will be removed to prevent further tartar build up.
