6 – 12 months, depending on personal needs
The key aspects of life dental are ensuring the treatment you receive is efficient, comfortable and effective. This is accomplished through the detection of potential complications in their very early stages. A regular dental examination every 6 to 12 months, dependant upon your current level of oral health, is as vital for your overall health as a regular checkup with your GP.
The long-term success of your treatment relies on exact diagnosis therefore, before commencing with any treatment programme, a thorough oral examination is conducted along with a complete review of your general health.
We pay close attention to the health of your teeth and gums, your jaw position, your occlusion (how your teeth fit together when you bite), we may also have a full set of x-rays taken, should they be necessary.
It is only through regular dental examinations for your children that we can promptly treat any irregularities and ensure their permanent teeth emerge correctly. For adults, regular oral examinations can help to prevent tooth loss and the future need for dentures, bridges or implants.
Here at life dental, keeping our records updated and having our patients attend regular examinations with us are the most important aspects of preventative dentistry.
