Checking in for dental check-ups

Having regular dental check-ups are really important for maintaining healthy teeth and gums. Many people only think about booking a dental check-up when they are in dental discomfort. However, pain is a sign that something needs treatment, which can lead to even more pain and expense.

Instead, we recommend that you aim to have a dental check-up at least once per year, but twice per year would be ideal. Some patients need to visit the dentist even more frequently to manage problems such as gum disease or tooth decay. Once you’ve visited your Braintree dentist and we’ve got to know each other, we will give you a dental check-up schedule that suits your individual needs.

Why regular dental check-ups are important

Seeing your dentist regularly allows us to keep track of your oral health, and enables us to take a more preventative approach to your care.

Dental check-ups also help reinforce good oral hygiene habits, help us detect any problems early, and give us an opportunity to discuss any treatments you may need.

During a routine dental check-up in Essex, your dentist will:

  • Assess the condition of your teeth

  • Assess your gum health 

  • Assess soft tissue 

  • Take x-rays where required

  • Screen for oral cancer 

  • Provide oral hygiene advice

  • Devise a personalised treatment plan

Your dental check-up is an important opportunity for you to gain insight into your own dental health and will inform your dentist’s treatment recommendations for you.

Commonly asked questions about dental check-ups

How often should I see my dentist?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

We recommend visiting us at the Braintree Dental Studio for a check-up at least twice a year. Your dentist will let you know if you should plan to have a check-up more frequently or less often.

How long will my dental check-up take?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Will my dentist clean my teeth during my check-up?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

It is common for a dentist or dental hygienist to clean your teeth on the first visit, but this may not happen unless you request it. If you do not have a cleaning at your check-up, you can schedule a further appointment.

Are dental x-rays necessary?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

X-rays are often necessary at your first dental check-up to help your dentist fully understand the condition of your dental health.

I am nervous about visiting the dentist, can you help?
