Why regular dental examinations are so important

When we conduct a dental check-up we also check your mouth for oral cancer

Ask any qualified dentist and the chances are that they will tell you that one of the most crucial aspects of their patient service is to conduct a regular and thorough dental check-up. At Carisbrook Dental that is certainly the case and we recommend to virtually every one of our patients that they should book an appointment for a professional dental examination every six months. This allows our dentists to keep an expert eye on the condition of their teeth and gums and if we do happen to spot a potential problem then the chances are we can treat it there and then before it develops into something more serious that requires more extensive dental treatment.

A regular, twice-yearly dental check-up is absolutely vital if you wish to maintain healthy teeth and gums. It’s important to note though that as part of the Carisbrook dental check-up we also conduct a careful examination to look for any signs of oral cancer. Not every dentist does this! We, however, thoroughly check your teeth, gums, tongue, lips, throat and neck – both inside and outside your mouth – for any indication of what could be a deadly condition. The sooner this is spotted and the appropriate treatment provided then the better are your chances that cancer can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

A typical dental check-up takes about 30-minutes and our dental team will undertake a careful inspection of your teeth and gums as well as your overall oral health. We’ll probably also take digital dental X-rays to look inside your teeth and gums and any findings will be carefully and clearly discussed with you. We also take intra-oral photos to show you any problems and discuss possible solutions.

The chances are, if you attend a twice-yearly dental check-up, we’ll be able to give you a clean bill of health. But … should we spot any possible problem then rest assured we’ll explain all the treatment options to you and we’ll also provide a detailed cost estimate.

At Carisbrook, we believe in developing long-term relationships and by conducting a regular, routine dental check-up we know we can help our patients to protect the health of their teeth and gums, not just for today, but for years to come.

That’s why we’re proud to say that we have some patients who have trusted us to look after their oral health for over 50-years.

No one wants to suffer with tooth decay, gum disease or oral cancer, and by allowing our highly qualified dental teams to conduct a regular dental check-up and to pass on their expert advice, it is the perfect approach to maintain your oral health.
