Routine dental checkups for the whole family

A healthy smile is a happy smile, and we're committed to helping our patients to achieve optimum levels of oral health and hygiene. Routine dental checkups are essential to help prevent small problems from becoming much larger problems. We recommend visiting the dentist every 6-12 months to ensure your oral health is on track. We'll examine your teeth and gums and offer recommendations to help you care for your teeth effectively from home. As we get older, our oral health needs change, so it's important to continue visiting the dentist regularly for personalised advice.

Do I need to visit the dental hygienist?

We believe that all patients can benefit from regular dental hygienist appointments. During this deep cleaning treatment, we'll remove all traces of plaque and tartar that cannot be removed with brushing alone. Our treatments will remove surface stains, which can leave your teeth looking whiter and brighter. This is a great option before cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening to make the treatment as effective as possible.

The general dentistry treatment journey

This is what you can expect when choosing Smile Studio Dentists as your routine dental care provider.


Step One

Book a Consultation

When you book a routine checkup with us, you will enjoy a complete examination of your teeth, gums and mouth. We'll look for early signs of common issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.


Step Two

X-rays and Scans

If we need a better picture of your oral health, we will use X-rays and digital scans to see the health of your teeth and jaw. This can help us to spot the early signs of issues, such as impacted wisdom teeth.


Step Three

Dental Hygienist

If you are concerned about plaque and tartar buildup, or staining on your teeth, our dental hygiene team will take care of you. We offer Airflow Stain Removal for added comfort and incredible results.


Step Four

Your Treatment Plan

Your consultation and checkup is also a great time to find out about other treatments or simply create a plan for staying on top of your oral health.

General dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of common dental issues. It encompasses a wide range of dental services aimed at maintaining your oral health.

It's recommended to visit a general dentist at least every six months for a routine checkup and cleaning. However, your dentist may suggest more frequent visits based on your individual oral health needs. And if you have generally good oral health, you may be able to go longer between checkups.

To prevent tooth decay and gum disease, it's essential to maintain good oral hygiene practices. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss daily, limit sugary and acidic foods, and visit your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings. If you are unsure about how to care for your teeth at home, we can offer personalised support.

We recommend children start to see the dentist regularly from 6 months, or from when their first tooth emerges. Getting your child used to the dentist from a young age will help to prevent them from developing a fear of phobia of the dentist.

We have extensive experience in supporting nervous patients to overcome their fears. Our staff undergo regular training to update their knowledge and provide the best possible support to our patients. If you are nervous about your visit, let our reception staff know and they will do everything they can to help make your visit relaxed and stress-free.

If you have a toothache, it's important to schedule an appointment with your general dentist as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can rinse your mouth with warm water, floss to remove any trapped debris, and take over-the-counter pain relievers if needed. There are many reasons you might have a tooth ache, and it's important to act quickly to ensure a positive outcome.

Dental emergencies, such as a knocked-out tooth or severe toothache, require immediate attention. Get in touch with our team and let them know you are having a dental emergency. We set aside some appointments every day for emergencies, and we may be able to see you the same day. If you have a dental emergency out of office hours, we recommend calling the NHS 111 service.

Dental X-rays are generally considered safe, and the radiation exposure is minimal. Dentists use lead aprons and digital X-ray technology to minimise exposure. X-rays are essential for diagnosing dental issues that may not be visible during a visual examination. If you are pregnant, let your dentist know before your appointment, as you will be unable to have a dental X-ray.

How much does private general dentistry cost in the UK?
