So, to help you find the answers you’re looking for, our dentist, Dr. James N. Aldridge Jr., would like 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 routine dental cleaning and exam appointments every six months. If you are a victim of gum disease, you will need to attend your appointments more often.

Q: How do checkups help me?
A: Checkups can help you by removing the plaque and tartar from your teeth and gumline, strengthening your tooth enamel, whitening the teeth, making sure your oral health is in the best condition possible and more.

Q: Do checkups hurt?
A: Checkups don’t usually hurt. You will experience some pressure and maybe a little bit of tickling, but not typically pain. If you have sensitive teeth, make sure to tell our team so we can be extra gentle with your smile.
