Oral Health Assessment

This free service is offered to every NHS patient. We will conduct a comprehensive check of your oral health by assessing your jaw joint function as well as checking for any other abnormalities.

We will then complete an oral cancer check, gum health check and assess your teeth. This gives the foundations and knowledge we need to give you the best care moving forward.

Oral Health Treatments We Carry Out


It is important to check that your upper and lower teeth fit nicely and evenly together with the least amount of destructive interference.


We examine the tissues inside your mouth by looking at your lips, gums, cheeks and tongue to make sure their are no abnormalities.


These simple checks are carried out each and every time you visit, in order to detect any issues and prevent future oral health problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

A list of the most common questions regarding Oral Health Care

How often should i brush my teeth?

We recommend that you should brush your teeth at least twice a day. We also advise all of our patients that you should always brush your teeth before going to bed.

Should i brush my tongue?

It is important to brush your tongue as plaque can also build up on it. This can lead to bad breath and other oral health problems.

Should i use dental floss?

Flossing is an equally important part of your oral health routine as brushing, as it helps remove little pieces of food that may be getting stuck in your teeth.

What food should i try to limit?

We always advise that you limit sugary and acidic foods as these food groups can erode the enamel of your teeth. While you don’t necessarily have to avoid such foods altogether, it doesn’t hurt to be mindful.

What is the best way to brush my teeth?

We suggest that you take your time, moving your brush in gentle circular motions to remove plaque. Unremoved plaque can cause calculus build up and gingivitis (early gum disease)

Which type of toothpaste should i use?

When it comes to toothpaste, there are more important elements to look for than whitening power and flavors. No matter which version you choose, make sure it contains fluoride.

Should i be using mouthwash?

Again, mouthwash is a useful part of your oral hygiene routine. It helps reduce the amount of acid in your mouth, cleans hard to brush areas and re-mineralizes your teeth.

How often should i visit my dentist

At minimum, we suggest that you should visit us for cleanings and checkups twice a year.
