The American Dental Association recommends you visit your general dentist for a regular visit at least once every 6-months to maintain a healthy smile. Regular checkups and oral health maintenance prevent the development of serious dental problems that can require costly treatment – so make sure to visit your dentist regularly so you can enjoy a healthy smile!
What happens during a routine visit?
During a routine visit, your general dentist will work with you to develop a customized dental plan for you. Your check-up will include a cleaning, exam, preventative education and any other services that help keep your mouth healthy.
Your dentist may incorporate a variety of restorative dental care procedures in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan. Restorative dentistry is used to repair the effects of tooth decay, trauma, defect or disease in the mouth. Examples include crowns and root canals.
