Check ups

At Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic we know that every smile is unique, and strive to nurture the important relationship between you and your dentist. Regular check ups are advised to complement a good daily oral health routine and to provide a preventative approach to dental issues.

Our dentists in Belfast take the time to understand your lifestyle, past treatments and procedures, and are able to talk through any concerns. We understand that a trip to the dentist can cause apprehension, so building a relationship of trust between our dentists and you can help calm nerves and put anxieties to rest.

What does a check up include?

On your first visit, a complete health history will be taken to provide us with a broad understanding of your individual needs. Your dentist may take an x-ray of your teeth. An x-ray can be invaluable for ascertaining the current landscape of your jaw, for example the position of any wisdom teeth, and for diagnosing any issues that may otherwise go unnoticed.      

At every check up, your Belfast dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your mouth, teeth and gums. They will examine the health of the soft tissue in your mouth (cheeks and tongue), test your gums for any signs of gum disease and remove any plaque or harmful tartar. As well as teeth cleaning and oral health analysis, your Blue Sky Dental & Implant Clinic dentist will also offer mouth cancer screening and offer advice and guidance on continued and improved dental care.

What are the benefits of regular check ups?

The health of your teeth is invaluable, and prevention is better than treatment further down the line. Regular check ups give your dentist the opportunity to halt any signs of gum disease or tooth decay and work with you to keep your smile fresh and bright, now and in the future. Routinely examining your smile can identify problems early.

Check ups help to

  • Prevent gum disease and mouth cancer
  • Maintain good oral health
  • Prevent halitosis (bad breath)
  • Retain your teeth
  • Keep a whiter, brighter smile

How often should I have a check up?

Your Belfast dentist will advise on how often you should have your teeth checked as part of your oral care routine. This will depend on your individual needs. Some people schedule a dental check up once or twice a year, while others, who may require or have undergone treatment, will need to visit more frequently. You and your local Belfast dentist will discuss the most suitable frequency for general check ups and work out a date and time that suits you.
