Most dentists would recommend you have a check-up once every year. Some people might require check-ups less frequently and others more frequently based on how healthy your teeth and gums are.

A check-up allows your dentist to check your teeth and your general oral health to see if you have any problems. Regular check-ups will ensure that potential problems are caught early or completely prevented in the future.

What happens at a Dental Check-up?

The dentist will examine your teeth, gums and mouth and check your teeth for any signs of tooth decay.

The dentist will also examine your teeth and gums for signs of other conditions such as diabetes, halitosis and oral cancers.

She/he will ask about your general health and any problems you’ve had with your teeth, mouth or gums since your last visit and give you advice on your teeth-cleaning and gum maintenance.

At Dental Care Ireland we recommend a dental check-up once every year to keep on top of your oral health.
