Regular checkups protect your oral health

Avoid the NHS waiting lists

What is included in a checkup?

The purpose of a routine checkup is to look for the early signs of oral health problems. All dental checkups include a comprehensive oral health check and X-rays if required. This will ensure your teeth remain healthy and free from issues like tooth decay or gum disease. If you attend regular checkups, this will be easier, as the problems will have less time to develop. However, if you haven't been to the dentist for a while, it's possible that problems could be much more advanced.

Dental checkups without the wait

If you're worried about your oral health because you are unable to secure an NHS appointment, don't wait around for small problems to become much bigger problems. Routine checkups are essential, but many people miss them once it becomes more difficult to secure an appointment. With private dental care, you can access routine checkups to ensure that your teeth remain healthy and you don't have to pay for more expensive restorative treatments.

Advice and aftercare

Once the checkup is complete, we'll offer you aftercare advice for keeping your teeth healthy at home.

Children should start to visit the dentist regularly from when their first teeth appear. Regular visits when they are younger can help to prevent them from developing a phobia of the dentist.

Most people need to visit the dentist every 12 months. However, some patients may benefit from more frequent visits, such as every 6 months. If you have good overall oral health and no issues with your teeth, you may be able to visit every 2 years without any problems.

In some cases, you may be referred to a private dentist if your needs are very complex and are outside of what is offered by your local NHS dentist. In this instance, you may choose to switch to a private dentist for your routine checkups to ensure good continuity of care.

Yes, you won't lose your spot with an NHS dentist if you choose the see a private dentist. The exception is for NHS orthodontics, as you will lose your spot on the waiting list if you choose to have private treatment.

It is certainly worth going to a private dentist if you are struggling to access dental care elsewhere. If you are in pain or are worried about your oral health, it's better to seek help sooner rather than waiting on a list for an NHS appointment. If you ignore dental problems, they can become much more expensive to treat further down the line.

During your appointment, we will examine your teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue for signs of problems. If you have any pain, we can diagnose this with an examination and X-rays. A dental checkup is also an ideal time to ask questions about your oral health or any other treatments you might be considering.

If you've missed your last few checkups, don't worry about it. We offer a friendly and judgement-free space for you to access the dental care you need. Our only goal is to help you get your oral health back on track and this all starts with booking your private dental checkup.

Yes, our team is highly skilled in supporting nervous patients to help them get over their fear of the dentist. Dental phobia is more common than you might think and can impact your oral health if it means that you avoid the dentist entirely. If you're ready to take back control of your oral health and conquer your fears, get in touch with our team today.
