How Often Should I Get a Dental Checkup?
Dental health varies from person to person, biological factors, age and general health, generally the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends adult patients visit a dentist once or twice a year even if their mouth is in excellent condition.

How do you get information on dental treatment/s?
You want to make sure that your dentist is actively involved in learning about the latest developments in dentistry, medicine, and health care. This means that the dentist reads a variety of research articles, attends professional conferences and meetings, is a member of professional groups, and/or communicates with other dental and medical professionals on a regular basis.
Why Should I Have Dental X-Rays Taken?

Most adult patients have dental X-rays every year and a full mouth series every four to five years. But those with a higher risk for dental problems may need them every 6 to 18 months.
Why Should I Consider Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace missing or weakened teeth.

Dentists can give you this customized information based on your specific needs.
