What We Offer

Routine Examinations & Check-Ups

Attending regular dental check-ups (examinations) allows a dentist to see if you have any dental problems and will help you keep your mouth healthy. If you need any further treatment your dentist will advise you at this appointment.

At each dental check-up your dentist will check the following:

  • Examine your mouth, gums, and teeth.
  • Perform routine cancer screening.
  • Ask you about your general health and ask for an up to date Medical History, and whether you’ve had any problems with your mouth since your last visit.
  • Give you advice on your lifestyle (diet, smoking and alcohol) and ways to promote good oral hygiene.
  • Discuss with you an appropriate time for your next visit.

Following this examination your dentist will advise you an appropriate timescale for your next examination. This time will vary depending on the condition of your oral health, ranging from 3 months to about 2 years.

If you experience any problems in between your check-ups you should contact us to make an appointment as soon as you can.

In an emergency or outside of practice hours please dial 111.
