At Ock Street Clinic we believe that your teeth should last your lifetime and integral to this is having regular dental checkups.
Regular checkups will help to keep your gums and teeth healthy. They also allow us to quickly identify and recommend treatment for any mouth problems and advise you on the best ways to keep your mouth and teeth healthy. By detecting oral health issues early we hope to, if possible, prevent them altogether or deal with them early.
During each routine checkup your dentist will:
- Thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and mouth to check for signs of early decay or irregularities which may effect your mouth’s health
- Discuss with you any specific problems that you may have had with your teeth, gums or mouth since your last visit, as well as asking about your general health
- Ask you about various aspects of your life-style including your diet, tobacco, teeth-cleaning habits and offer some advice on how this can effect your oral health
After discussing our findings during your appointment we will recommend a date for your next visit. This can vary from person to person depending upon your current oral health or any other health factors which may be affecting it
