It’s much more than a quick poke around!
So what are we looking for?
We give a thorough check up of everything, including screening for oral cancer, TMJ, smile and bite assessment and analysis and tooth wear including signs of grinding.
We like to take the time to ask about your general health and listen to any concerns you have. Smoking, alcohol, diet - it all affects your oral health so there is plenty to chat about to make sure we give you the best possible care. We enjoy advising our patients on their own dental regime, including brushing techniques. Lastly, we like to make arrangements for next time - but if anything happens before then, we’ll make sure you know to get in contact.
We recommend check-ups every six months. By examining your gums, soft tissue and teeth we can prevent small problems becoming something major another day, so it’s absolutely worth investing your time twice a year. Excellent oral hygiene plays a really big part in preventing problems too, so allow us to advise you on getting a brilliant dental care routine of your own.
