It is recommended that you visit the dentist for a cleaning and dental health exam at least every six months in order to keep your mouth in optimal health. Along with examining your teeth, the dentist will also check for signs of disease such as gingivitis or oral cancer.
You do not have to limit your visits to just twice a year. It is also a great idea to come in for a dental cleaning before special events such as weddings or portraits to make sure your smile is sparkling and bright.
During your exam, Dr. Garth Collins may recommend dental X-rays in order to get a more complete understanding of your oral health. X-rays can provide a more thorough look at the structure of your teeth and help identify potential areas of trouble. The X-rays we use at the dental practice of Garth Collins, DDS are very safe, and the amount of radiation is very minimal and well controlled. We will also use every precaution to ensure your safety and only take X-rays that are necessary.
