The first part of your semi-annual appointment is your checkup. We’ll ask you some questions about your overall health and if there are any diseases or conditions that run in your family, that way, we know what to look out for. If it has been awhile since you last had an X-ray, we may also take some images of your mouth to see if there are any problems lingering below the surface. Typically, we’ll only do this once every year.

We’ll examine your mouth in search of any symptoms or signs of common oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. If we notice anything out-of-the-ordinary, we’ll make a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan before we finish up your checkup with a quick oral cancer screening.
