We believe in a preventative approach to dentistry by encouraging regular dental examinations. During your exam, your dentist will provide you with advice on how to care for your teeth and gums. This will help to ensure that your mouth stays healthy, and your teeth and gums stay fully functional for as long as possible.
During a routine dental exam in Belfast & Hillsborough, your dentist will also ask about any health problems you have or medications you're taking and discuss how they might affect your oral health. It will also involve advice about diet, use of tobacco products and other lifestyle factors that can affect oral health.
Visiting your dentist for a routine check up every 6 months is the best way to prevent toothaches, tooth decay and gum issues. It also gives you the opportunity to get advice and ask questions. A routine exam involves a thorough examination of your mouth and may include taking x-rays.
Having routine check ups help to:
- Prevent gum disease and mouth cancer
- Maintain good oral health
- Prevent bad breath
- Retain your teeth
