GENERAL DENTAL CHECKUPS

You might like to think of a general check-up as your dental ‘warrant of fitness’. Coming in for regular check-ups means we can spot any potential problems early on and create a personalised treatment plan for your unique oral health needs.

checkups

What does this treatment include?

  • A thorough assessment of your teeth and gums 
  • Checking any existing fillings to make sure they are still intact and functional 
  • Screening for oral cancer 
  • A minimum of two X-rays to check for signs of dental decay that could be missed in a visual examination (this is important as dental decay doesn’t usually cause pain or symptoms until it is quite advanced) 
  • Teeth polishing

When do I need this?

For most people, we recommend getting a general dental check-up every 12 months. In some cases, we may recommend more frequent visits.
