Depending on your teeth and their general health, it is recommended that you have a dental check up between once every six months, and once every twelve months. This allows your dentist to check that everything is good with your oral health, and to make any recommendations for treatments that you might need to have. This helps you maintain the best oral health possible.
If you don’t have a dental check up booked and you think it might be due, make an appointment as soon as you can. It’s something that is too important to let slip, and if you miss an appointment, you could be at risk of serious conditions such as oral cancer. Your dentist can look out for signs of diseases and conditions during your appointment, and finding them early can make them much more treatable. After your appointment, book your next one so it is in your diary.
