Regular examinations, or check-ups, are a must and form the basis of our preventative dental care plan. Even with the perfect oral hygiene routine you can still develop dental problems that you may not be able to spot by yourself in your own bathroom mirror.
We will give you a through oral examination, with oral cancer screening as standard. We strongly believe in the motto – prevention is better than cure and recommend an examination at least every 12 months and ideally 6 months to ensure problems are caught early on and treated when they need a "little fix," instead of waiting until it hurts and a more drastic and costly solution is required.
MORE THAN JUST A SCALE AND POLISH
Southlands dental offers complete preventative dental care from A to Z
Our dental team is highly skilled and will professionally clean your teeth using the latest toothpastes and polishes to remove any plaque and tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing or flossing alone. Many patients comment on how much smoother their teeth feel after a thorough clean.
Our dentists and hygienists are also keen to educate patients on the correct technique of brushing and flossing and give advice on how to maintain a good oral health routine to maintain a healthy smile.
