Dental Express London strives to create perfectly unique smiles fit for each of our patients while keeping up with the fast-paced lifestyle. To help each other out the regular check up is advised to complement your good daily oral health routine and to give a preventative approach to dental issues.
We understand that a trip to the dentist is not a pleasure for everyone, so that’s why we like to build a trust relationship between our dentist and you. We will listen to all your concerns, past treatments, procedures, lifestyle choices and help you calm your nerves and put anxieties aside.
What does the check up include?
On your first visit, a list of all relevant health details will be compiled to provide a broad understanding of your individual needs. Your dentist may take an x-ray of your teeth. An x-ray can be invaluable for ascertaining the current landscape of your jaw, for example the position of any wisdom teeth, and for diagnosing any issues that may otherwise go unnoticed.
At every check up, the dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth and gums. They will examine the health of the soft tissue in your mouth (cheeks and tongue), test your gums for any signs of gum disease, teeth cleaning analysis.
What are the benefits of regular check ups?
The health of your teeth is priceless, and prevention is better than treatment. Regular check ups give your dentist the opportunity to handle at a very early on stage any signs of gum disease or tooth decay and keep your smile fresh and bright, now and in the future.
How often should I have a check up?
Our principal dentist will advise on how often you should have your teeth checked as part of your oral care routine. This will depend on your individual needs. Some people schedule a dental check up once or twice a year, while others, who may require or have undergone treatment, will need to visit more frequently. Together we will arrange the best frequency for general check ups and work out a date and time that suits you.
Check ups help to:
- Prevent gum disease and mouth cancer
- Maintain good oral health
- Prevent bad breath
- Retain your teeth
- Keep a bright smile
