What Is A Routine Dental Check-Up?
At our state-of-the-art practice in Leeds, we pride ourselves on preventing oral health issues through routine check-ups. We want all of our patients to benefit from healthy teeth and gums, which is why routine check-ups are so important. Our compassionate dentists will work with you to preserve your natural teeth and make sure they are as healthy as can be, for a lifetime.
A routine dental check-up provides a thorough oral health exam. One of our dentists will assess the health of your mouth, teeth and gums to spot any issues that could be arising. Dental examinations give us the chance to prevent oral health issues before they become too severe to address. We check for issues like gum disease, mouth cancer and tooth decay. Our friendly team will perform any necessary x-rays and advise you if further treatment is needed.
How Routine Is A Routine Check-Up?
Here at The Dental Architect, we recommend visiting our stylish practice in Leeds for a routine check-up twice a year. We would also advise regular dental hygiene appointments, also twice a year, to stay on top of your oral health and keep your mouth as clean as possible.
Even if you think your teeth are in perfect condition and are experiencing no signs or symptoms of gum disease, it’s still necessary to attend your general dental examination.
