Routine Examinations at Appletree Dental Surgery

As the famous saying goes…”Prevention is better than Cure”. Regular dental examinations are important to maintain you oral hygiene and to recognise any issues early.

What does a routine examination involve?

Routine dental examinations involve a thorough assessment of your teeth, gums and mouth including your cheeks and tongue.

An X-ray of your teeth may also be taken, allowing the dentist to see the exact position of your teeth in the jawline and making it easier to detect cavities or any other underlying issues.

For regular patients, the appointment will start with a few questions about your general health and any problems that you have had since your last visit.

Your dentist will then have a discussion about any concerns that you may have about your oral health, smile, lifestyle or wellbeing.

Our friendly and experienced team will make you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible and it usually doesn’t take as long as you expect.
