At Swish Dental we have thousands of patients who come routinely every 6 months to have their teeth checked and for professional cleaning. Dental check ups are crucial to detecting tooth decay, gum disease, tooth wear and cracks.
Your Dental Check Ups
At your dental check ups you should always tell our dentists any concerns you have no matter how small they are. It is our goal to treat your concerns as well as assessing your teeth and gums for any work they need to have done or any preventative advice we need to provide.
About your check up
Dental check ups are used to assess your bite, to assess for signs of tooth wear (grinding/clenching/erosion), assess for tooth decay, assess your gums, assess for oral cancer and assess your existing dental work to see if it is still strong. Nothing lasts forever so routine checks are important.
Agree a plan
Once we have assessed your oral health we will make a recommendation for preventing dental disease, providing dental treatment where appropriate and create a maintenance plan. Our goal is to make a plan you are comfortable with to suit your lifestyle.
Execute the plan
Once a plan has been created we work out how many appointments you would like and should you need a lot of work done and want to go on an interest free payment plan the paperwork can be filled out on the day.
