The Regular Dental Visit

At every regularly scheduled dental appointment—usually every six months—your dentist thoroughly examines your teeth, gums, mouth and throat. This visit includes the following:

Head & Neck Examination

Clinical Dental Examination

Dental Cleaning (Prophylaxis)

After completing the dental examination, your dentist may outline a detailed treatment plan, if necessary, and indicate when you should return for a follow-up visit. Regular preventive maintenance, along with a thorough home-care regimen, is vital to maintaining good oral health.
