ORAL HEALTH EXAMINATIONS

We have a strong prevention-based philosophy. Regular dental checkups help to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy by spotting any problems early. 

We recommend at least two checkups and hygienist visits per year for most people.  


WHAT HAPPENS IN A ROUTINE CHECKUP?

If you are a new patient, your first visit will be slightly different to our routine checkups. Find out more by clicking here.

When your first arrive, we will ask you to complete a 'Dental Menu' which asks you about your teeth at the moment, whether you are having any problems and if there are areas you would like to improve. Then you can relax by enjoying a coffee and the magazines in our reception lounge. When it's time for your appointment, you'll be greeted by Kate or Marc. 

 

YOUR ORAL HEALTH EXAMINATION

 

When you are with the dentist, s/he will:  

  • Look at your face and neck to see that they are healthy and feel under your jaw.
  • Look inside your mouth, at your tounge, your cheeks and lips, the roof of your mouth and at the back of your throat. These are places where there might be a problem that you cannot see or feel.
  • Look at your teeth and gums to see whether they are healthy and if there are signs of decay, damage or gum disease. For children, we will also check tooth and jaw development to see if orthodontic treatment may be required now or in the future. 
  • Compare your mouth to how it was when we last saw you.

The dentist will then discuss with you any treatment you may need, explaining the choices and whether there will be any cost.
