Regular dental exams are the key to good oral hygiene

Dental Examinations in Walsall & Cannock

What is a dental examination?

A dental examination is a routine check-up at regular intervals, determined by your dentist. This is both a visual and physical examination. This allows us to identify existing or developing oral conditions.

What does an oral examination consist of?

During your routine dental checkup, we will conduct a thorough examination of the mouth, teeth and gums. We will also carry out oral cancer screening as standard. Cheslyn Hay Dental Practice understands the importance of detecting these conditions as early as possible in order to treat them effectively.

This also allows us to gain a further understanding of any oral hygiene habits that you may have as well as discussing any issues that you may have had with your teeth and gums since your last examination.

 Cheslyn Hay Dental Practice is rated 4.9 out of 5 based on 8 ratings with Google.

What could be found during a routine dental examination?

Your dentist would be looking for any underlying issues you may have that require addressing. This could include a number of issues that would all require different forms of treatment. One of the most common issues found in the diagnosis of gingivitis, for example, this would require regular visits to a hygienist for them to perform a scale and polish. This would reduce the plaque present in the mouth that causes the inflammation of the gums commonly found with this ailment.

It’s also common to discover the patient requires a dental filling. This is a cavity that appears in the tooth that if left untreated can further damage the tooth. Cheslyn Hay offers white fillings as a standard form of treatment.

Why go for regular dental check-ups?

It’s simple, prevention is better than cure. There are a range of dental complaints that if left untreated can cause unnecessary pain, discomfort and potentially further costs requiring emergency dental care.

We are committed to providing our patients with excellent standards of preventative and general dental care. We advise that patients attend regular dental examinations to help maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Our aim is to help you keep your teeth for life and make the most of your natural smile.
