We usually reserve between 15 and 45 minutes for a check-up depending on the condition of your teeth. In this time you will receive a check-up, professional cleaning if needed, (usually there is some tartar build-up), and any needed hygiene instructions. We believe strongly that prevention is better than cure. (you can read more about this on our preventative dentistry page). During the check up your teeth and gums will be examined. In this way you only need to come one time and not get separate appointments for cleaning and a check-up.
