Regular visits to the dentist (in the form of regular dental check-ups, digital x-rays and dental hygiene appointments) will allow us to help you look after your teeth and identify any dental problem early before they have a chance to worsen. In England the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) have issued evidence-based guidelines for how often you are advised to come for your regular dental checks.
Everybody at any age can benefit from preventative care. Preventative care will lesson the chance of fillings and extractions, which can not only cause discomfort but also the need for costly restorative work. In children it is very important to establish good habits as early as possible and teach them how to brush their teeth correctly,
It is important to note that Dental Health covers the whole of the oral cavity. When you come for your routine dental examinations, we look beyond just teeth and gums and can pick up conditions such as ulcers, stomatitis or tongue issues as well as caries or other problems.
Regular check ups and hygiene appointments can be paid for on a 'pay as you go' basis (so you pay as and when you see us) or by joining a Denplan Budget Scheme.
