General Dental Check-Up in Epping – Because Prevention is Always Better Than Cure

Besides regular brushing and flossing, one of the best ways to maintain a healthy smile is by undergoing a regular general dental check-up. Epping-based dentists such as the team at Lyndarum family dentist believe that by combining good home care with 6 monthly check-ups, you can easily prolong the life of your teeth. This is why we’re passionate about gum disease prevention – which all starts with a simple dental check-up. But that’s not all… Over time, plaque can build up on the teeth and can harden into a substance known as calculus (also known as tartar). When this happens – as well as causing damage to the teeth and gums – it can no longer be removed by brushing alone. Instead, it needs to be removed professionally. For this reason, a regular general check-up and clean in Epping is highly important if you want to protect teeth from problems like gum disease and cavities.

General dental check-up in Epping – a two-part process

The good news about a dental check-up is that it is minimally invasive and involves a two-part process. Here’s how it works..
Part 1 – Inspection and evaluation
This involves a thorough inspection/evaluation of your teeth and gums, as well as your head and neck area. This is to screen for oral cancer. Where applicable, x-rays may be included. During the general dental check-up, our Epping dentist is looking for any abnormalities in and around the mouth area including the tongue. From this, our dentist will give you a problem diagnosis (where applicable) and a bespoke treatment plan based on your needs.
Part 2 – Plaque removal and cleaning
During the second phase of the dental check-up -and once the inspection is complete– we’ll remove any build-up of plaque using the latest gentle dentistry, so your mouth remains healthy. In addition to this, we’ll also clean and polish your teeth so that they feel great.
Finishing with… hints, tips and advice
As a forward-thinking dentist, we love to educate and help people take good care of their teeth. So, during the latter part of the inspection and teeth cleaning process – once we’ve done all that we can, we’ll give you some hints and tips on how to get the best out of your smile. We can also help with factors such as diet, water intake, and lifestyle choices such as smoking. Of course, there are many advantages to attending regular general dental check-ups here in Epping but perhaps the main benefit is that it can save you money. During the procedure, our experienced team can spot any problems early on and treat them before they become larger (and inevitably more expensive) dental problems.
It doesn’t matter whether you’re long overdue a dental check-up or you haven’t visited the dentist in a few years, we won’t judge you. Instead, we’ll do all that we can to help you get your oral health back on track. Remember, it’s never too late!
