Dental check-ups are routine appointments with our dentist to assess and evaluate the overall oral health of a patient. They typically involve a thorough examination of the teeth, gums, mouth, and surrounding tissues to detect any signs of dental problems or diseases, and to determine the need for any preventive or restorative treatments.
During your appointment, we take the time to listen to your requirements and any other aspects of your dental care that you wish to discuss. We believe this open communication helps us understand our patients better than anyone else.
A comprehensive examination of the face, head and neck is performed including the jaw joints. This is followed by an oral health screen for oral cancer, gum disease and tooth decay which is accompanied by digital X-rays for diagnostic screening purposes, and photographs so you can see what we see. If any problems or disease is identified, we take the time to discuss things in detail with you giving you all of the possible treatment options.
At Droitwich Dental Studio, our focus is on prevention and how we can prevent oral disease from occurring. We aim to achieve this through advice, education and building relationships to ensure that your dental health is maintained in the long run.
The dentist recommends an examination is performed every 3 – 18 months, depending on a large number of factors. The average is every 6 months.
