At Clayhall Dental Care we promote the policy of preventative dentistry and we believe it is important to visit your dentist regularly, at least every six months. Your routine dental examinations and hygiene visits do more than just preserve your smile, they play an essential part in reducing oral health issues.
As a new private patient, your first appointment will last approximately 30 minutes. The dentist will do a thorough examination checking your gums and teeth and in all likelihood take x-rays, which are a very important aid to the diagnosis of dental diseases and abnormalities. We use a digital x-ray scanner which reduces any radiation to an absolute minimum.
Your dentist will very likely refer you to the hygienist for an intensive scale and polish.
