Dental Check Up & Clean
Your dental check-up will involve a comprehensive dental exam and professional clean.
Why a regular dental check is important.
One of the most important things you can do to maintain oral hygiene is a regular visit to a dentist. Recommended every 6 months.
Removing tartar or calculus can only be done by a dentist. Also, having a professional regularly assess your oral hygiene will treat problems early to avoid more complicated and expensive treatment later.
