Description

What is a dentist? A dentist is a health professional who specializes in caring for the teeth, gums and other tissues in the mouth.

When to visit

When would you see a dentist? It is recommended to take a child to his or her first visit to the dentist at one year of age, or six months after the first tooth erupts.

What to expect

What would you expect at a visit to a dentist? During a visit to the dentist’s office, a dental hygienist will clean your teeth, do an examination and sometimes take X-rays. The dentist will check the X-rays of your teeth for signs of decay, check your gums for changes, and check for signs of oral cancer or other diseases.

How often to visit

How often should you visit a dentist? Most children and adults should see their dentist for a regular cleaning and check-up every six months. People at a greater risk for oral diseases should have dental check-ups more than twice a year.
