We want you to have the best dental health possible. Most of our patients attend every six months for a dental examination.

A dental examination is so much more than checking your teeth. Initially we will listen and find out your dental problems and concerns, what you may like to change too. We will always update your medical history as it is vital we understand any medications or treatments you may be receiving.

We will also provide tailored advice for you and your family including diet advice and cleaning tips to ensure every member of the family has the best possible oral health.

During your check we will inspect:
  • externally for any swellings/lumps
  • check your jaw joint
  • inspect your gums and the supporting structures
  • see how the jaws relate to each other
  • carry out a full mouth cancer screen
  • check your teeth for decay, wear and tear
  • take x-rays if required

As you can see, an oral health assessment is so much more than checking your teeth!

Dental and oral health is an essential part of your overall health and well-being. Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental cavities and gum disease, and has also been linked to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.

Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is a lifelong commitment. The earlier you learn proper oral hygiene habits — such as brushing, flossing, and limiting your sugar intake — the easier it’ll be to avoid costly dental procedures and long-term health issues.
