When you come for one of your check ups in Preston you will be seen by two oral health care professionals, your dentist and the dental hygienist. Our dental hygienist will conduct an initial oral exam on your teeth and gums and will then document any of the changes that your teeth might have incurred subsequent to your last dental check up.
Your dentist will then implement an oral exam of your mouth, gums and teeth and then review the cleaning done by the hygienist, diagnose any oral health problems and if any oral health problems are identified during this examination, the dentist will then make recommendations for the best possible treatments, whether you need a dental implant for a single missing tooth or dental bridges if you have multiple missing teeth.
