The more you know about the checkups, the less nervous you might feel in the dental chair. So, to help you, our dentist, Dr. Benjamin Johnson, is happy to provide the answers to these commonly asked questions about dental checkups:

Q: How often do I need to attend my checkups?

A: You need to attend your checkups every six months. But, if you’re a victim of gingivitis or periodontitis, it’s recommended to attend your checkups more often.

Q: How do checkups help me?

A: Checkups help you by deeply cleaning your teeth, removing the plaque and tartar from your smile, strengthening your tooth enamel, removing surface stains, and ensuring your oral health is in tip-top shape.

Q: Do checkups hurt?

A: Checkups might involve a little bit of pressure, but they don’t typically cause any pain. If you have sensitive teeth, make sure to tell our dental team so we can be extra gentle during your appointment.
