How Often Should I See the Dentist?
The Canadian Dental Association recommends a visit with your dentist for a regular checkup every 6 months, but your individual needs may vary depending on your oral health. Our qualified and caring team will work with you to create your personal dental health plan.
Dental Exams & Cleanings Done with Care
Along with daily brushing and flossing, regular dental exams and cleanings are pillars of good oral hygiene.
At Van Mills Dental, we work from the heart to provide friendly service to each one of our patients. We get to know you and your oral concerns and make sure you’re at ease in our practice.

What to Expect During Your Dental Exam
During your dental exam, we’ll assess your mouth and teeth to check your risks for oral health issues.
We will need to gather some information from you, including any medical diagnoses, medications you’re taking, and problems you’ve noted regarding your oral health. We’ll also check in about some lifestyle factors, including whether or not you smoke, any allergies you have, and if you have any anxiety about coming to the dentist.
Some of the things we’ll evaluate include:
- Your teeth’s spacing and bite
- Signs of decay or tooth disease
- Signs of cavities
- Any Evidence of teeth grinding or clenching
- The health of your temporomandibular joint
- The state of your gums
We may also need to take X-rays of your teeth.
Smile Bright with Dental Cleanings
Dental cleanings are an essential part of your overall oral care. They clean your teeth in a way that flossing and brushing alone can’t manage.
During your cleaning, we will:
- Assess the physical health of your gums
- Remove stubborn plaque and tartar
- Polish your teeth
- Apply a fluoride treatment
Our dental team is here to help keep your teeth and gums healthy!
