I am living in Sweden now, originally from the US. I was wondering what are common/routine visits to the dentist like here? For example, in the US we typically go to the dentist twice a year for a cleaning by a dental hygienist and inspection by a dentist. Excluding things like root canals, braces, extractions, etc. I made an appointment with dentist here, and they just took x-rays and examined my teeth, but did not clean them. How do I make an appointment to get my teeth cleaned? Do I need to specifically make an appointment with a dental hygienist? How often do you have a dental cleaning here?
Sorry I am just ignorant about the dentist here and don't want to sound stupid trying to make an appointment!
