Patient Examination

Check-ups

Regular check-ups allow us to keep an eye on your oral health and spot any problems early. During your appointment, we will examine and assess your teeth, gums and mouth, looking for signs of:

  • Decay
  • Infection
  • Oral cancer
  • A misaligned bite

We will ask if you’ve had any problems since your last visit so you can raise any concerns you might have. To help you keep your teeth in tip-top condition at home, we will advise the best cleaning techniques and share tips on diet, alcohol and tobacco consumption.

If we find anything that requires treatment, we will devise a treatment plan that includes the best course of action and expected costs.

You may not need to see us every six months and your dentist will let you know when you need to come back for your next check-up. If you have any problems between check-ups please phone us to arrange an earlier appointment.
