During a dental exam, the dentist or hygienist will:

- Possibly take dental X-rays or, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures
- Remove stains or deposits on your teeth
- Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures
- Assess your need for fluoride

Schedule An Appointment
It’s best to visit your dentist every six months.
Regular dental visits assist in the preservation of healthy teeth and gums. For those who require additional care, dental appointments should be more frequent.
What to expect:
During your initial dental appointment, you’ll be provided a thorough physical examination to identify any dental issues. During the checkup, the dental team will examine your gums, tongue, bite, eyes, face and jaw movements. The evaluation identifies gum diseases, loose teeth, tooth decay, broken teeth, and damaged fillings. We will also make sure any dental appliances are in good condition.
