If you are a new patient, your first appointment will be little longer, as we will need to spend time finding out about your dental and general health, which may include taking x-rays. At your check-up visit we will do the following:
- we will ask if you have had any dental problems since your last appointment and enquire about your overall well-being
- we check for tooth decay, tooth damage, gum disease, misaligned teeth, enamel erosion and signs of oral cancer
- we may demonstrate dental care techniques such as brushing and flossing, and offer tooth-friendly diet tips and smoking cessation advice
If we discover you have any problems, we will talk through your options and formulate a treatment plan.
