What is a Dental Check-up?
During a dental check-up, your mouth, teeth and gums will be examined to give an idea of your level of oral hygiene. If something is wrong, this gives us a chance to identify it.
Dental check-ups are important for everyone, but some people require less frequent check-ups than others. It’s best to ask your dentist how often you need to be seen.
What's involved with a Dental Check-up
During your dental check-up, your dentist will do a few basic things:
At certain times your dentist may perform an x-ray. This will allow us to find hidden oral problems such as the loss of bone as a result of gum disease. It’s not a pleasant thought but you’ll be pleased to hear that, during the check-up, your dentist also searches for signs of mouth cancers and other diseases.
Your dentist will also spot any build-up of plaque. This will sometimes be dealt with straight away during the dental check-up, or may be handled during a later session with a dental hygienist. Hygienist treatments are sometimes arranged at the same time as dental check-ups.
