Dental Check-Ups

Regular dental check-ups are crucial for maintaining optimal oral health. Dental check-ups allow your dentist to identify any dental issues early. Treating problems promptly prevents them from worsening and becoming more challenging to manage.

During a check-up, your dentist examines your teeth, gums, and mouth. They assess your overall oral health and discuss any concerns you may have.

What Happens During a Dental Check-Up?
  1. Health Assessment:

    • Your dentist will inquire about your general health and any recent dental problems or pain.

    • They’ll discuss your diet, smoking habits, alcohol use, and teeth-cleaning practices.

  2. Clinical Examination:

    • Your dentist examines your teeth, gums, and mouth.

    • They check for cavities, gum disease, and signs of oral cancer.

    • Facial and neck abnormalities are also assessed.

  3. X-Rays (if needed):

    • Dental X-rays provide detailed images of your teeth and jawbone.

    • They help detect hidden issues like impacted teeth or bone loss.

  4. Advice and Recommendations:

    • Based on the examination, your dentist provides personalised advice and may recommend you to come back for treatment.

    • You’ll receive guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene and preventing future problems.

  5. Next Visit Planning:

    • Your dentist will recommend a date for your next check-up.

    • The interval between check-ups varies based on your oral health and risk factors.

Regular dental check-ups contribute to a healthy smile and overall well-being. If you experience any dental problems between check-ups, don’t hesitate to contact us for an appointment.
