What to expect during a dental check-up?

During a dental check-up, our dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and soft tissues to identify any abnormalities like swelling and decay, and we’ll perform an oral cancer screening.

If necessary, we'll take some small X-rays to make sure you have no other underlying problems with your teeth. Based on your dental needs and assessment results, your dental team may recommend a course of treatment to get your mouth healthy, and then provide you with an easy and affordable way to get your teeth and gums healthy.

Your oral health and gum disease

Early tooth decay can be difficult to detect, but it can be identified during a comprehensive examination and X-ray, which is why we recommend regular dental check-ups

Early detection of gum disease helps prevent damage to your tooth, which makes it easier and less expensive to treat.

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, causing red, swollen, and bleeding gums. When left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis, a type of infection that causes discomfort and difficulty eating, and lead to tooth loss at an advanced stage. We can replace missing teeth with cosmetic dentistry, but the best treatment is to catch gum disease early and prevent the need for cosmetic dental work.

Treating tooth decay with fillings

During a regular dental check-up, we’ll sometimes discover tooth decay or a cavity that needs to be treated.

Fillings are a common dental treatment used to seal and repair decaying teeth and prevent further damage, with a local anaesthetic to make sure you don’t feel a thing. Before going ahead with a filling, your dentist will discuss the available filling and material options with you, including the option for white or tooth-coloured fillings so they blend in with the rest of your smile.

Mouth cancer screening

Mouth cancer can occur in any part of the mouth and has a higher mortality rate than breast cancer, cervical cancer, or skin melanoma.

It's crucial to detect abnormalities early and prevent late detection with a mouth cancer screening at your dental check-up, which involves a detailed analysis of your oral health history, a thorough examination of your mouth, and a detailed scan for any lumps or lesions.

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene treatments are essential for maintaining healthy teeth and gums because they help to prevent the accumulation of plaque and bacteria, reducing the risk of infections and tooth decay.

Like dental check-ups, it’s important to schedule routine hygienist appointments to ensure optimal oral health and maintain fresh breath.

Frequently asked questions about check-ups at TG’s Dental Suite

How often should I have a dental check-up?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Preventative treatment is better than reactive treatment, so it’s important that you have regular dental check-ups every 6 - 12 months, as these help us to keep on top of your oral health and hygiene, detect problems at the earliest signs, and perform dental treatments to address them before they become more serious.
