3 doctors agree
In brief: 6 mos-1yr
Bitewings are "check up" xrays and in some offices are done every 6 mos, in others, every year (i am not referring to how often your insurance will pay for them).
....However, a cavity can form in as little as 4 months, so it may be necessary to take one in between your normal check up.
