As everyone has different dental health levels and different risk factors to develop problems, every patient would have a recall interval recommended by their dentist. On your dental health checks we assess the health of your teeth, gums, cheeks, lips, joints and skin. We would also assess what your risks are of developing unhealthy conditions or problems. Following a full discussion on all of these, we would recommend a recall interval just for you.
It is common that patients may need to see a hygienist more regularly than their dentist, again this is assessed on an individual basis on every appointment.
