Regular dental exams or checkups are essential to make sure your mouth stays healthy. At each checkup we monitor your oral health so we can catch any problems early. We look for signs of tooth wear and erosion, we’ll check your gums, and even talk to you about how to avoid too much sugar in your diet. We keep X-ray records of all our patients’ teeth so we can track any changes and we have a team of hygienists to help with cleaning and flossing advice.
Importantly, we check for problems that you may not see or feel. Many dental problems don’t become visible or cause pain until they are in more advanced stages – including cavities, gum disease and oral cancer.
Remember: early detection, advice and treatment will help you avoid a lot of future dental work and fees.
