During a dental checkup your dentist will:
- Enquire about your general health and any issues you may have had with your mouth, gums, or teeth.
- Examine your mouth, teeth, and gums.
- Offer advice about good oral hygiene practices, diet, etc.
- Suggest a date for your next dental appointment.
Why do you need a dental check-up?
A check-up allows your dentist to see if you have any dental problems and helps you keep your mouth healthy. Leaving problems untreated could make them more difficult to treat in the future, so it’s best to deal with problems early, or, if possible, prevent them altogether.
