In general dentistry, getting regular dental check-ups are important for making sure that your teeth and gums are healthy. People are advised to have regular dental visits. At least once every 6 months or as often as your dentist recommends. Don’t assume that you only need to get a check-up twice a year, because some patients may require more frequent checks.
A dental check-up will allow your dentist to look for any dental problems and to help you out with your dental health. If certain dental issues are left untreated for too long, they can become more difficult to treat. Therefore, it is best to start dealing with dental issues early on or to take the needed steps to avoid them altogether.
A full examination of your teeth, gums and oral cavity will be carried out. It is also routine for your dentist to take x-rays during your check-up. X-rays help with the identification of existing problems that may not be visible during a normal examination. Adult x-rays can identify impacted teeth, dental decay, jawbone damage, cysts, tumors and abscesses. Children’s x-rays may provide a clear indication of where adult teeth will come in.
Your dentist will ask questions about your general health or any concerns you’ve been having with your teeth.
If your dentist spots any signs of dental problems they may give you advice about lifestyle changes that could positively influence your dental health. This could include oral care tips, dietary recommendations and they may also recommend that you quit smoking. Your dentist will discuss the date of your next visit at the end of a check-up.
Even if you have a strict brushing and flossing routine, it is still a good idea to visit your dentist regularly for dental check-ups. Are you searching for dental care in Barrie, ON?

Very clean, professional and helpful. 2 other dentists previously tried to fix my composite veneer and both times it look awful and/or was the wrong colour. One trip here and everything was fixed!
Very friendly, helpful staff. Makes you feel welcome as soon as you enter. I needed a tooth removed and got in the same day I called. When I arrived I didn’t have to wait. I have numerous problem with my teeth and they came up with a solution. Thank you all so much.
Just got home from the Smile Centre and I'm thrilled with my results. Had Zoom whitening, and it was better than I expected. The attendant took the time to explain everything super thoroughly. She warned I may have sensitivity but so far so good. I wish I did it ages ago.
The first thing I noticed upon entering the building was the beautiful design plan and lovely staff. I was greeted at the door and made comfortable throughout my entire experience. Everything was explained to me in detail and the staff always made sure I fully understood. This is an amazing office and I would 10/10 recommend it!!
