Keeping a close eye on your oral health
The best dental treatment is minimal to no treatment at all. That’s why regular check-up appointments at John Street Dental are so important.
A regular dental check-up and professional clean is the only way to keep your teeth and gums in optimal condition and help prevent the development of gum disease and tooth decay, which could lead to extensive and costly restorative treatments in the future. Find out more about periodontal disease.
Should you have any problems with your teeth then a comprehensive check-up will allow our clinical team to make an accurate diagnosis of any issues. We can then develop a tailored treatment plan with you.
We don’t believe in rushing our patients through their appointment. We always leave ourselves plenty of time to dedicate to each person. A typical dental check-up examination can include:
- Comprehensive examination of teeth and gums
- Dental x-rays – as needed
- Intraoral and extraoral photography
- Scale and Clean.
A dental check-up is also an opportunity for you to get to ask questions and seek advice about your oral health or treatments such as teeth whitening or replacing silver fillings with white. You can also discuss any issues such as sensitivity or plaque and tartar build-up, which are common dental problems that can generally be tackled without extensive treatment.
The John Street Dental clinical team is here to help in any way we can.
