We recommend that you have your teeth examined and checked at lease twice per year, although sometimes your dental provider may recommend more frequent visits, we call these visits “Active Maintenance” appointments. These appointments are essential in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your teeth and gums.

Bacteria can build up over time and adhere to the tooth surface, this bacteria is hard in texture and impossible to remove with the toothbrush or floss, regular active maintenance appointments allow for this to be removed regularly, thus preventing gum disease.
