Dental Check Ups in Drighlington

Routine examinations allow us the opportunity to assess which of our patients are at risk from dental disease (tooth decay and gum disease) and give advice which is relevant and specific to each individual’s dental needs. We will also discuss any cosmetic dental concerns you may have.

Any problems discovered during your examination will be clearly explained, along with all the available treatment options and their associated costs.

How Often Should I Have a Check Up? 

Your local 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.

What Does a Check Up Include?

The dentist checks for non-healing mouth ulcers, red or white patches which are often painless which you may not have noticed. These could be an early indication of a more serious mouth condition. If changes in your mouth are checked out early, a more serious condition can be prevented or treated early.  Smoking, using tobacco in other forms, and drinking large amounts of alcohol can affect the soft tissues in your mouth.

A new patient examination includes;

  • Full mouth digital iTero scan
  • Intra oral photographs
  • Full medical history
  • Intra oral x-rays
