Why Are Dental Checkups Are Essential

Posted by Dr. Alicia Abeyta DDS FAGD on Apr 11 2012, 02:01 AM

When you visit your dentist for a checkup, they will conduct a physical exam. This exam will look for signs of any dental health issues. If issues are found, they can be treated as soon as possible.

Dental checkups include a thorough dental exam. During your appointment, your dentist will check your teeth for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or oral cancer. Having regular dental checkups can help your dentist detect any problems before they become severe.

The American Dental Association recommends seeing your dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. This is the minimum recommendation.

However, your dentist may suggest more frequent care depending on your oral health needs. If it’s been a while since your last checkup, it’s a good time to get back on track.
