A recall visit consists of a maintenance appointment. At Sanctuary Lakes Family Dental,  this appointment will involve complete examination of your teeth, gums, bone and soft  tissues which is important to detect oral cancers. Routine X­rays may also be taken at  regular intervals (usually 2 years unless patient is high risk) to detect any initial cavities  that cannot be detected clinically, for example between teeth. A scale and clean and  polish will also be done at this appointment, followed by fluoride treatment as per  individual requirements.
Recall visits are highly recommended every 6 months in our practice for low­risk  patients. Patients who fall in the high­risk category will require more frequent recall  visits, which is usually every 3 months and will be determined at the initial check­up and  recall appointments.
