How Often Should You Get a Comprehensive Exam?

It’s a good idea to visit a dentist once every six months. This gives us time to catch any problems before they become too serious. It also aligns with how often you should get your teeth cleaned.

That said, there are some situations where you’ll need to visit the dentist more frequently. Patients may need more frequent exams if they have periodontitis, or if they’re recently undergone oral surgery.

What We Look for During a Comprehensive Exam

During your comprehensive exam, we’ll take a look at your:

  • Teeth – We'll check for discoloration, overcrowding, and disease.

  • Gums – We'll look for overall gum health, seeing if there is any inflammation or irritation.

We’ll also check to ensure you’re not experiencing oral cancer. Comprehensive exams typically include x-rays, which allow us to spot things that we can’t with the naked eye.

Along with our own examination, we’ll also sit down with you to discuss any concerns you have about your oral health or the appearance of your smile.
