We recommend coming into our office in Collingwood, ON regularly for a dental checkup.
Maintaining proper oral health involves a lot more than just brushing and flossing regularly. You also have to come into our office at Georgian Shores Dental Centre for a dental checkup on a regular basis. Typically, we recommend coming into one of our offices in Collingwood or Midland Ontario every six months. However, depending on your personal situation, you may have to come in for a dental checkup more often. The time between recommended checkups will depend on your cavity risk, gum health, home care and your diet.
When you visit our office for a dental checkup, there are a few things you should let us know before we start the examination, such as:
• Your fears – Don’t be afraid to tell us if you are hesitant about coming to the dentist. We may be able to provide solutions that can make your time with us more relaxing and comfortable.
• Your overall health – Please let us know if you have been diagnosed with any diseases or other health conditions since you came in for your last dental checkup and if you are taking any medications.
• Your dental health – We encourage you to let us know if you believe you may have a cavity, if your teeth have become sensitive, or if you have experienced pain in any area of your mouth.
Once we begin your dental checkup, we will likely carefully examine your teeth, perform X-rays, thoroughly clean your teeth, and provide you with instructions for at-home oral care. If you have any questions about what happens at a standard dental checkup or you would like to schedule an appointment with our office, give us a call at Georgian Shores Dental Centre today.
