We advise you to visit your dentist every 6 months for a periodic check-up. During a six-monthly check-up, your teeth will be checked for cavities, whether the fillings and crowns fit properly and the condition of your gums will be examined. Sometimes it is necessary to take X-rays. This allows us to examine your teeth even better and detect minor dental problems. After a check, a follow-up appointment will be made if necessary. This can be at the dental hygienist or at the dentist. We also recommend a six-monthly check-up for children. A child of 2.5 years often has complete milk teeth and from this age you can also schedule a check-up appointment.
