Regular check-ups avoid unwelcome surprises
Most of us think to ourselves, “check up at the dentist? It can
wait.” Well yes it can. But those who wait sometimes wish they
hadn’t. By having regular check-ups you not only keep a check on
your teeth, you massively reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises, such
as early signs of oral cancer.
We perform a 15 point health check, which includes teeth, gums, tongue,
palate, throat, glands, joints and lining of the mouth and skin.
To keep costs to the minimum Tally Ho offer you an affordable payment
plan, so just ask us about that when you next call.
Your first visit?
If this is your first time at Tally ho, your first appointment is
usually a bit longer than subsequent visits. This is so we can catch up
on your dental history and, with your consent, take any necessary
x-rays. You should also free to discuss with us any fears or
concerns you currently have about your teeth, or treatment you have had
or think you might need in the near future. We don’t usually
treat you during this first visit, unless of course you are in some
degree of pain.
Think it’s time you got rid of those amalgam fillings of yours?
If you have a history of fatigue or flu-like symptoms after a filling,
or you have pronounced symptoms of fatigue, neurological disturbances
or muscle aches and you suspect your fillings are the cause, we can
give you a blood test, known as the Melisa, which is an antibody test
designed to measure the relative sensitivity of a person to mercury or
any other metals used in dental restoratives.
