Check up

A check-up usually lasts around 15 – 30 mins. During your check-up, your dentist will look at your teeth and gums and ask questions to find out more about you and your smile. They are there to get to know you and your teeth and to help you look after them.

Seeing your dentist regularly is essential for healthy teeth and gums. And we find that more you visit your local practice and get to know your dentist, the less you’ll worry when you do need to visit.

Your dentist can advise as to how often you should come for a check-up, usually between 3 months and 2 years, depending on the health of your teeth.
