We recommend that you schedule a routine dental exam every six months unless your dentist makes a different recommendation based on your individual situation. Dental exams help to catch cavities and other oral issues early on so they can be addressed right away rather than be allowed to grow into larger, more concerning issues. During your dental exam, your dentist will also conduct an oral cancer screening and check for early signs of gum disease. Routine dental exams are the best way to maintain your oral health and prevent small problems from becoming larger problems down the road. Schedule your dental exam today at Century Dental in Jackson.
