Healthy Mouth Check

Regular check-ups, typically every 6 months can help you to maintain good dental health. Regular dental cleaning and exams are also an opportunity for your dentist and hygienist to identify any potential dental issues such as gum disease which can easily be treated and even reversed when caught in the early stages.

Untreated gum disease is the number one reason for tooth loss and it is entirely preventable with regular visits to your dentist.

We continually assess your gum health which can change if you are pregnant, have a health condition like diabetes or are taking medication. Even restorations like a bridge or removable partial denture can impact on your gum health if you are struggling to clean it correctly. That is why we work with you to ensure you use the best oral hygiene approach for your unique mouth.

Bi-annual dental check-ups provide a gentler and less invasive approach to dentistry especially if you experience dental anxiety. Undetected or untreated dental problems can lead to more invasive and costly dental procedures, as well as more visits and time in the dental chair.

Your oral and overall health are important to us and that is why we monitor your soft tissues for oral thrush and virus infections. We also perform regular oral cancer screenings to give you peace of mind.

We take x-rays as necessary to help us detect decay early and treat or monitor the area. X-rays also help us assess infection or trauma and oversee the development of your child’s teeth, and if necessary, refer them to a specialist orthodontist for a consultation.

At Bank Cottage Dental Practice, we believe it is critical for our patients to see the same dentist at each visit when possible. Your dentist will become familiar with your habits such as teeth clenching and nail biting.  They will be familiar with your oral as well as general health, and know what approach to take if you have a dental phobia, whether that is pausing treatment, discussing the procedure step by step, or something else entirely.

Attending irregularly or seeing different dentists can make it harder to diagnose and monitor dental conditions developing or changing over time.

Please call Bank Cottage Dental Practice on 01454 412053 to book your appointment.
