Many people dread going to the dentist, even for a simple check-up. However, dental checks are really important and they really can save your teeth. With regular checks, we can keep an eye out for warning signs and ensure you get treatment as quickly as possible in the event of problems arising.
About dental checks
Dental check-ups are short and painless and they can make all the difference when it comes to oral health. We advise all out patients, young and old, to have a check-up every 6 months in order to allow us to keep an eye out for symptoms of decay and gum disease and ensure patients are free from pain. Check-ups only last a few minutes and there’s nothing to worry about; your dentist will simply have a good look around your mouth, check your teeth and examine your gums. Your dentist will also have a chat with you about your general health and check that everything is going okay with your oral hygiene regime at home. They will also be happy to answer any questions and discuss any concerns you may have.
If you have any dental problems or symptoms, your dentist will arrange another appointment so that you can receive the treatment you need. If you don’t have any problems and you’ve got a clean bill of oral health, we will look forward to seeing you again in another six months.
We understand that for some patients, even the thought of having a check-up can be daunting, so we offer treatment for nervous patients. We often see patients who haven’t been to a dentist for a long time and we do all we can to try and make every patient feel comfortable. We want to assure you that there is nothing to feel embarrassed or ashamed about and we promise that the check-up will be completely painless. Our dentists are on hand to provide effective and efficient check-ups for all our patients and we look forward to welcoming new patients, as well as catching up with old faces.
