We encourage regular dental health checks and hygiene treatments for long term oral health.
Dental health checks
Regular dental health check ups, combined with a good daily oral care routine, are an essential part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums. They will help you to keep your smile looking healthy and ensure that you hold on to your natural teeth for as long as possible. In addition, this approach will help you to avoid expensive and complicated treatments in the long term.
When dental problems are left unidentified and untreated they only get worse. This means that in time they could cause more pain, be more difficult to treat and end up costing you more money.
Dental health checks also provide a chance for you to voice any concerns to your dentist, such as any pain or changes that you may have noticed in your teeth or gums.
What happens during a dental check-up?
During your dental health check-up, the dentist will carry out an assessment of your teeth and gums, explain their findings to you and then, if necessary, recommend specific treatment options that are right for you.
Your dentist will also be looking for any signs of mouth cancer at every dental check-up. Statistics have shown that early detection and treatment of mouth cancer significantly improves survival rates.
