A dental examination every six months is usually recommended. Patients that are prone to cavities or plaque buildup may need to visit more often. Smokers, diabetics, patients with weak immune response to infection, and those with gum disease may also need more frequent checkups.
Your dentist is the best person to determine the right dental checkup and cleaning schedule for your teeth.
Dental exams typically include professional teeth cleaning which effectively removes stains as well as plaque and tartar along the gum line. Your dentist will also check your gums.
