What is a dental check-up?
In a dental check-up here in Milton Keynes, our experienced dentist will examine not only your teeth, but also your mouth and gums to ensure your mouth is healthy.
It’s good to have regular check-ups and we will make recommendations to you individually about how often these should be.
Remember that Appledore offers the exclusive Appledore Bonus Club (or ABC), which includes check ups and hygiene visits.
What’s involved in a check-up?
Firstly we will ensure that you are comfortable and we’ll explain exactly what we will do. We’ll also take this opportunity to check with you if you are experiencing any issues or pain that you may be experiencing.
In general, we will always examine your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue and take the time to give you advice on things you can do to improve your oral health such as how to brush etc.
If you have a build-up of plaque, you may be referred to a hygienist to perform a scale and polish, or your dentist may do this straightaway if necessary.
Your dentist will also check for any signs of mouth cancer or other general diseases that can affect the mouth at each dental check-up.
How much does a dental check-up cost?
