Dental health checks
Dental practice at 40 Harley Street
Regular routine examinations are essential to maintain good oral health and we recommend that you have a dental health check at least once a year. Early detection of dental problems often means less complex treatment in the long run. Your medical history will also be kept updated (including any new medications or allergies) by attending regular routine examinations.
Dental health checks at 40 Harley Street, London include small routine digital x-rays taken usually every two years. This allows the condition of your mouth to be monitored over time to make your dental health checks even more thorough and insightful: Intra-oral scanning with a 3D camera (iTero System) may also be used to monitor changes to your teeth and gums.
- The incidence of oral cancer (or mouth cancer) is rising. Your dentist will check for any signs of the disease including lesions. Early detection and monitoring with appropriate preventative advice can make invasive treatment unnecessary.
- We use digital x-rays which are available almost instantly and involve lower doses of radiation compared to the traditional wet-film method. The x-rays can also be enhanced and enlarged for better diagnostics.
Our dental check-ups are usually combined with a visit to the hygienist for hygiene therapy.
