Regular dental check-ups are necessary to ensure your teeth and gums are in good health, and to assess for any hidden issues. Your dentist will suggest when you should have your next check up, although check-up times can vary from 3 months to 2 years, depending on how healthy your mouth is.
What happens at a check-up?
Your dentist will make general enquiries about your oral health and any problems you may have had since the last visit. They will give advice on how to maintain your dental hygiene in accordance with your lifestyle, and will examine your teeth, gums and mouth for any issues.
What about dental treatments?
This advice is for routine check-ups only. If you have problems with your teeth between appointments, contact your dental surgery to make an earlier appointment.
