Routine Dental Checkups

Are you taking good care of your teeth? Regular dental checkups will help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Routine dental appointments are essential to maintain good oral health and a happy smile. Your dental checkup at Gosforth Dental Surgery is carried out by an experienced, qualified dentist and is the best way to spot any problems with your mouth before they become serious. Both adults and children require routine dental appointments on a regular basis because preventative dentistry is the key to keeping your mouth healthy.

Routine dental checkups are usually carried out every six months, but the number of times you need to attend these appointments varies from patient to patient. Some patients may require more frequent visits, while others may need to come into the practice less often – your dentist at our Newcastle dental practice will advise you on how often you need a regular checkup.
