We all know, ‘prevention is better than cure’ and the same applies to your oral health.
From our experience of treating thousands of patients over the years, we have observed that most of the problems could have been avoided if they had been treated earlier. If the symptoms had been detected at an earlier stage, severe oral disease could have been avoided.
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.
Regular dental examinations not only help protect your oral healthbut also help your overall health.
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 may be 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.
