It is normally recommended that you visit a dentist for a check-up every six months or as advised by your dentist. A thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, gums and any previous restoration work will be carried out.
Regular dental check-ups enable potential problems to be spotted early and prevent the onset of further damage.
Your dentist will also assess your periodontal health (gum health) and look for any indicators of gum disease.
Soft Tissue Examination
Your dentist may check your jaw joints, facial muscles and lymph nodes. They may also check your tongue, cheeks, lips and palate. They will be looking for lesions or ulcerations that may require treatment.
Your dentist will discuss their findings and a suitable treatment plan and follow up appointments will be arranged if needed.
