What happens at a Dental Check-up at Market Rasen, Lincolnshire?
At your regular dental check-up, your dentist in Market Rasen will:
Examine your teeth and gums
You only get one set of adult teeth, so keeping them looking and feeling good for as long as possible is essential!
At a regular dental check-up, our professional dentists will check your teeth, gums and mouth. If you have any concerns, you can discuss these with us. We may take x-rays or digital images using our CBCT (Cone Beam CT) scan to get a better understanding of your bite and your jaw.
Your teeth will be checked for plaque. If plaque is not dealt with, it will harden on your teeth to become tartar. You cannot remove plaque with brushing and flossing and so it must be removed by a dental professional. If tartar is left, then it can affect your gums and lead to more serious problems such as tooth decay or gum disease.
At your regular dental check-up, your dentist will check the health of your teeth for any cavities. Cavities form when you have a build-up of plaque on your teeth. If any cavities are found, they can often be dealt with at your regular dental check-up.
At Wolds Dental Studio in Market Rasen, we offer white fillings which are colour matched to the rest of your teeth so that they blend in and are inconspicuous when you smile.
If you have a damaged tooth such as a chip, crack or fracture, your dentist can make you up a bespoke dental crown which fits over the top of your tooth to protect it.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dental Check-up
How often should I visit the dentist?
We recommend that most patients visit their dentist every 6 to 12 months. The frequency will depend upon the health of your teeth and whether you have any problems. Your dentist will let you know when they next want to see you.
What type of toothpaste should I use?
There are many toothpastes on the market, and it can be confusing to know which to buy. We recommend buying a toothpaste that contains fluoride as this keeps your teeth healthy.
Do I really need to floss?
Unfortunately, food and plaque do form between the teeth, and they can be very hard to keep clean. Plaque can build up in these places and then harden into tartar which can widen the space between teeth and gums which can lead to gum disease. For this reason, we do recommend flossing your teeth. Your dentist and hygienist can talk to you more about this in detail.
