Living with Covid: we’ve had to do this many times in the last 2 years.

Regular routine check-ups are important – not just for the teeth but also the gums and the mouth as a whole. If there are any changes that need to be treated, such as tooth decay or gum disease, these can often be detected in the early stages, making treatment more straight-forward. Regular visits can also help identify risks so that preventive strategies can be put in place. Most dentists recommend a routine dental check-up every 6 to 12 months, but a cookie cutter approach does not necessarily work for everyone. Some may need to visit a dentist more or less frequently and the dentist will advise how often a check-up is required.

Primary Dental is passionate about making good dental health available for both adults and children. It’s about keeping smiles healthy, whatever the age. By looking after your teeth today, you’re giving yourself the best chance of keeping your teeth for life. That’s why routine check-ups are so important. They can help to prevent any significant, costly dental work in the future.

 

A routine six month or annual check-up and clean from the independent dentists operating from our centres will generally include:

  • A comprehensive dental examination
  • Gum health check
  • X-rays to detect early decay
  • A professional clean
  • A polish to remove plaque and stains
  • A fluoride treatment to keep enamel strong

Teeth cleaning

A professional scale and clean removes plaque and tartar that you simply can’t remove when brushing and flossing at home. This is typically done at the same appointment as your regular check-up, but a separate appointment may be required if there’s more than the expected amount of build-up to remove or if your gum health is compromised. Following your scale and cleaning your dentist may recommend a concentrated fluoride application. This treatment is aimed at hardening the enamel of the teeth helping to prevent decay, tooth wear and erosion caused by acidic foods and drinks. Most dentists recommend having a check-up and cleaning every six months. Your dentist will advise you if you need to attend more or less frequently based on your oral health, dental hygiene and general health. We recommend booking your next check-up in advance at each visit, so you can secure a time and day that suits your schedule.
