Periodic checking

A regular check-up, also known as a semi-annual check-up at the dentist, is essential for maintaining good oral health. During these regular checkups, the dentist can detect and treat problems early, which can prevent serious complications. 

Why are periodic checks important?

Early detection of dental problems

Regular dental visits can help detect problems such as cavities, tooth decay, gum disease and other abnormalities at an early stage. This enables timely intervention and prevention of further damage.

Professional teeth cleaning

During a periodic check-up at Dentist Amsterdam-Zuid, your teeth are often professionally cleaned at the same time. This removes plaque and tartar, which reduces the risk of gum disease and ensures fresh breath.


The dentist, dental hygienist and/or prevention assistant can provide valuable information and advice on oral health. During a check-up appointment, the dentist can inform you about proper techniques for brushing and flossing your teeth, the importance of a healthy diet for your teeth and other useful tips for the best oral care.

How often is a periodic check-up needed?

It is generally recommended to schedule a periodic check-up at Dentist Amsterdam-Zuid every six months. This is true for most people, but depending on your specific oral health and risk factors, the dentist may recommend a different frequency.

Cost of periodic monitoring

Basic insurance and supplementary insurance

The cost of a dental check-up can vary depending on several factors, such as the dental practice, your health insurance and the specific treatments carried out during the check-up. Dentists use rates set by the Dutch Healthcare Authority (NZa). It is advisable to discuss the rates prior to your appointment and inquire about any reimbursements from your health insurance.

Transparency and budgets

We consider transparent communication essential. Where possible, your dentist will give you an indication of costs before any treatments are carried out.

Tips for a successful periodic check-up

To get the most out of your regular dental check-ups, here are some handy tips you can follow.

1. Maintain good oral hygiene

Regular brushing and flossing of your teeth is essential for good oral health. Make sure you brush at least twice a day and use floss, toothpicks or brushes daily. This helps remove plaque and prevent gum disease.

2. Pay attention to changes in your mouth

Be alert to any changes in your mouth, such as any sensitivity and/or pain.

3. Follow a healthy diet

A balanced diet rich in nutrients, such as calcium and vitamin D, is beneficial for your teeth and gums. Also limit consumption of sugary drinks and snacks, as these can contribute to tooth decay.

4. Avoid bad habits

Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can be harmful to your oral health. Try to avoid or reduce these habits to protect the health of your teeth and gums.

5. Ask questions of your dentist

Don't hesitate to ask questions during your regular check-ups. Your dentist is here to help you and can provide valuable information about your oral health and possible treatments.


A regular periodic check-up at the dentist is very important for maintaining healthy teeth. Early detection of problems and preventive care can prevent serious complications. Make sure you make an appointment for a check-up every six months and follow your dentist's advice. By maintaining good oral hygiene and following healthy habits, you can enjoy a radiant smile and optimal oral health.
