Examinations & Checkups


During your appointment, your dentist will perform a comprehensive examination of your teeth, including a gum health check and soft tissue examination. Digital x-rays may also be taken to check on your teeth below gum level.

To conclude your examination/checkup, your dentist will provide clear and concise feedback on your oral health and if required provide useful information on how to improve areas of your day-to-day dental hygiene routine.

Where necessary, you may also be provided with a detailed dental treatment plan and estimated cost in the event you may require further treatment.

We advise booking regular checkups with us throughout the year to ensure optimal oral health and prevent unnecessary and potentially painful problems occurring in future. Tooth loss primarily results from gum disease and decay.

Regular checkups are the ideal way to manage the oral healthcare of children and young adults,– including people with false teeth who can benefit through the early identification of conditions like mouth cancer and denture stomatitis.

Through recommended treatment and maintenance plans, the combined efforts of your dentist, hygienist and patient can help prevent the need for treatment and avoid unwanted fillings and extractions.

To book an appointment with us, please call 01296 730 260. You can also email us your details or send us a message via our contact form. Please feel free to request a call-back at your convenience.

When you become a patient at Claydon Dental, you’ll routinely receive friendly reminders that you may be due a checkup inline with your dentists advise or ongoing treatment plan.

Absolutely, yes. Claydon Dental welcome all new patients. Whether you’ve moved to the area, haven’t visited a dentist for a long time or you’re not happy with your existing dentist, Claydon Dental are here for you. We are always pleased to welcome new patients to our practice and are happy to accommodate adults and children alike.

Yes! You shouldn’t put up with unnecessary tooth pain. Tooth pain will rarely go away on it’s own and can be sending you an early warning sign of a potentially serious problem. Neglecting the pain can lead to more serious problems in future if not treated promptly. Don’t let a toothache cause you any more pain. Book your next dental appointment by calling 01296 730 260.

It’s amazing, but it really is possible. We’ll help you teach your children good dental care. And we’ll advise the entire family on techniques and oral hygiene habits which can ensure healthy teeth for life.

Whether your family lives in Buckingham, Bicester, Aylesbury or Milton Keynes, you’ll always be a member of our family at Claydon Dental.
