During every dental check-up we carry out an 8-point oral health check. We look at the health and function of your teeth, gums and jaw to make sure your oral health is the best it can be.
Often gum disease gives you no symptoms until it’s too late, and then your tooth has to be removed. So during your dental check-up, our dental clinicians screen your mouth for signs of gum disease, and give advice on how to address it.
All our dentists are accredited by the Mouth Cancer Foundation. So if we notice anything unusual we can refer you to a specialist doctor for further tests and to confirm a diagnosis. As with many cancers, the earlier mouth cancer is identified the better your chances are of a full recovery.
Regular visits to your dentist give us an opportunity to evaluate your oral health and treat any problems before they get worse. The quicker a problem is diagnosed, the easier it is to fix, And often without the need for anaesthesia.
We make a donation to our Community Fund for every dental check-up appointment. This fund supports small charities and other initiatives in the community. So every time you have a check-up you’re not only taking a positive step for your health, you’re helping local charities as well!
