Checks to keep teeth healthy
We take a preventative approach to dentistry. By maintaining healthy teeth and gums, we can help you avoid dental problems or stop them from worsening. Thatâ€™s why we recommend you visit us regularly, at least twice a year, or less frequently if you donâ€™t have any ongoing problems.
During your routine appointments, we thoroughly assess your oral health using a seven-step process. This helps us detect issues such as:
- Dental decay
- Dental erosion
- Toothbrush abrasion
- Tooth wear
- Gum disease
- Jaw problems
- Oral cancer
We also carry out a smile evaluation, including checking your tooth colour to see if you could benefit from whitening.
As well as examining your mouth, we will ask if you have had any problems with your teeth and suggest ways to improve your dental hygiene.
