The importance of a comprehensive dental check

A confident smile starts with a quality oral health check.

At Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic, we're big believers in preventing dental problems before they even start. An oral health check enables your dentist to check every aspect of your oral health in relation to your general health, including your teeth, mouth, and gums.

Using the latest digital technology we can look for signs of tooth decay, the health of your tooth structure, worn restorations, and any early signs of gum disease or oral cancer. Taking digital X-rays and 3D scans enables your dentist to give an accurate diagnosis and put together a personalised treatment plan to help you enjoy a healthy smile for the long-term.

We recommend that most patients visit us every six months for an appointment, so your dentist can assess the overall health of your teeth and gums.

We’re here to help nervous patients

As many as 25% of people in the UK skip dental appointments because they feel anxious or nervous about visiting a dentist.

At Highfield Dental & Facial Clinic, we're committed to helping nervous patients overcome their fears and to helping them to feel at ease about visiting our practice.
