What else is include? 

  • Your dentist may take an x-ray of your teeth 
  • Complete a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth & gums
  • Examination of the health of the soft tissue in your mouth (cheeks & tongue)
  • Test your gums for any signs of gum disease

How often should I have a check up?

Your Totnes dentist will advise on how often you should have your teeth checked as part of your oral care routine. This will depend on your individual needs. Some people schedule a dental check up once or twice a year, while others, who may require or have undergone treatment, will need to visit more frequently. You and your local Newark dentist will discuss the most suitable frequency for general check ups and work out a date and time that suits you.
