Children should be examined every 6 months because there is more change happening as they grow. Checking for cavities is important, but also supervising the growth of the jaws and teeth can allow for early interventions that could alleviate or avoid future problems.
In order to maintain a healthy mouth, everyone should have an intra-oral exam once per year. As part of a recall examination, Dr. Riemer will perform an oral cancer screening for any soft tissue abnormalities as well as checking all of the teeth and gums.
