Routine Dental Examination

Why do I need regular Dental Examinations

Prevention really is better than the cure, and identifying early dental problems can save time, pain, inconvenience and expense.

At North Leeds Dental we don't limit our Dental Examinations to the condition of your teeth. We are concerned with all the soft and hard tissues of your mouth which includes your jaws, TM joints, tongue, gums, floor of the mouth, palate and cheeks. Changes within the mouth can sometimes be caused by, or indicate more generalised health issues, so be prepared to inform your dentist of your medical conditions and medications, and don't be surprised if questioned about your general health.

During your Dental Examination it is not unusual for your Dentist to require specialist tests to be performed, the most common of these is the taking of xray images. Do inform your Dentist if there is any chance that you may be pregnant before consenting to xray examination.
