Dental check-up is the foundation of dental care. At the appointment both the teeth and the gums will be examined, this will sometimes include additional examination using X-rays. If necessary, tartar will also be removed and teeth will be polished. When abnormalities are found, an appropriate treatment plan will be drawn up together with you and follow-up appointments will be made. Depending on any risks present, an appropriate interval for the dental check-up is made with you (usually every 6 months).
