A COE is like a physical for your head and neck. It is a thorough evaluation and documentation of your teeth, gums, jaw bones, lymph nodes, and jaw joints. It is the foundation of the routine check-up. Your course of treatment is determined as a result of this exam.
A recare is exam is the check-up which determines any changes since the previous COE.
Digital x-rays show areas not visible to the eye.
A COE is recommended every 3-5 years depending on your history. Your dentist will determine what is right for you.
Yes, it is possible to have your teeth cleaned without having a check-up, but it is recommended that you see the dentist for a check-up every 6-9 months to catch problems early.
