How often should I come back for a check-up?

After your check-up, your dentist will recommend a date for your next visit and discuss this with you.

The time to your next check-up could be as short as 3 months or as long as 2 years – or up to 1 year if you are under 18.

Generally speaking, the lower your risk of dental problems, the longer the gap will be before your next check-up. This may vary at different times of your life depending on the condition of your teeth, gums and mouth or other changes in your health or lifestyle.
