Comprehensive Dental Examinations in Truro
Your gateway to lifelong oral health
Routine examinations and checkups are not just about assessing your oral health; they form the foundation of a comprehensive approach to maintaining a healthy smile. As you age, the significance of your teeth, gums, and overall diet becomes increasingly vital. With our guidance, you can keep them in the best shape possible, and the best part is, you get two of these crucial checkups per year as part of our plan.
The role of professional dental examinations
Professional plaque removal
One of the key components of our routine checkups is the professional removal of plaque, including tartar. Tartar, also known as dental calculus, represents a hardened form of plaque that can accumulate on your teeth over time. Despite diligent brushing and flossing, tartar buildup is inevitable. During your checkup, our skilled hygienist employs specialised tools to gently and effectively eliminate tartar, thereby reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
As part of our comprehensive dental examination, we also offer professional teeth cleaning, commonly referred to as a scale and polish. This process includes the thorough removal of plaque and tartar, followed by a meticulous polishing of your teeth. This not only leaves your teeth feeling smooth and clean but also contributes to maintaining optimal oral hygiene. Regular scale and polish sessions play a crucial role in preventing the buildup of plaque and tartar, promoting the overall health of your teeth and gums.
X-rays if necessary
In some cases, X-rays may be necessary to detect issues that are not visible during a regular examination, providing a comprehensive view of your oral health.
We provide tailored advice on oral hygiene practices, diet, and lifestyle choices to support your oral health.

Routine oral cancer screening
As part of our comprehensive dental examinations, we prioritise a thorough mouth cancer screening. Mouth cancer, or oral cancer, can develop in various areas of the oral cavity despite regular oral care practices. Our experienced dental professionals conduct meticulous screenings to detect any signs or abnormalities early on. This proactive approach significantly improves the chances of successful treatment. Regular mouth cancer screenings are crucial for timely identification, ensuring prompt intervention if any concerns arise, and contributing to the overall well-being of your oral health.
