At Salamanca Dental, we offer a dental check-up service for new and existing patients. A dental check-up is a service where our dentist performs a thorough inspection of the mouth, looking at the health of your teeth, gums and surrounding tissues.
A dental check-up allows the dentist to pick up issues early, often before serious dental diseases occur. Problems that are caught early will generally be simpler and more affordable to treat. We will teach you techniques to help keep your teeth and gums in good health. Dental check-ups are recommended 6-monthly, and more frequent visits may be required if you need some extra assistance in maintaining a smile that you are proud of.
What does a dental check-up involve?
As part of our dental check-up, our dentists will:
- ask you about your general health, as this will help identify if any medications or health issues are affecting your oral health, and can then advise you accordingly
- check your teeth for any holes (cavities), gum disease, plaque, hardened deposits known as tartar on the teeth and screen for oral cancer
- take X-rays, as this helps the dentist check difficult-to-see surfaces of your teeth, such as between teeth, below the gum line and near the roots
All of our dental check-ups help the dentist form an in-depth view of your oral health and allow them to diagnose, plan and discuss treatment options to help maintain your smile, with the aim of preventing future problems and saving you costs.
