Dental check-ups for adults and children
We recommend 6 monthly dental examinations as part of your preventative oral care. Generally, patients who attend regularly require less treatment than those who attend sporadically.
During your check up, as well as examining your teeth, gums and mouth for signs of any potential problems, we also carry out screening for oral cancer. Sometimes x-rays and digital photographs are required as part of the examination.
Children should come for check-ups as soon as their first teeth appear. This will get them used to coming to see us and we can give you advice on caring for your child’s teeth.
If you are a member of our Oral Care Plan, the cost of your check-ups as well as any x-rays is included in your monthly payments.
