Regular examinations, or check-ups, are a must, even if you carry out the perfect oral hygiene routine with regular brushing and flossing.

You may not be able to spot potential problems by yourself in your own bathroom mirror. Here at the Thornhedge we will give you a thorough oral examination, with oral cancer screening as standard. We strongly believe in the motto – prevention is better than cure and recommend an examination every 3-6 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.

Our hygienists are highly skilled and will professionally clean your teeth using the latest pastes and polishes to remove any buildup of plaque and tartar, which cannot be removed by brushing or flossing alone. Many patients comment on how much smoother their teeth feel after a through clean. Our 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.
