Routine dental care for a healthy smile for life

At Rhiwbina Dental, although we have a great deal of experience with restorative treatments such as dental implants, we strongly believe in a preventive approach towards dentistry.


Regular dental check-ups and hygienist appointments will ensure that your long-term oral health is maintained, and any potential issues are revealed early enough so that only minimal treatment will be necessary.

Regular dental examinations and hygiene appointments give dental professionals an opportunity to review not only your teeth and gums, but also your general overall health and the condition of the soft tissues in and around your mouth. We have invested in the very best of dental equipment allowing us to utilise digital x-rays to accurately detect decay or signs of infection as early as possible.

Why dental check-ups matter

Oral cancer screening as standard

Oral cancer is on the rise in the UK, and as one of the more aggressive cancers, it can have a life-changing impact.


We routinely screen patients during their regular dental check-ups for signs of oral cancer, because the earlier it is identified, the easier it is to treat. If you have experienced any of the following symptoms, get in touch immediately for a check-up.

  • A sore mouth ulcer that hasn’t healed within three weeks
  • Unexplained, persistent lumps in the mouth, which don’t go away
  • Unexplained, persistent lumps in the lymph glands (where your neck meets your jaw), which don’t away

As part of your regular visits to Rhiwbina, you will have:


  • Professional examination of your mouth, teeth and gums
  • Enquiries about you, your general health and any specific dental problems you may have experienced recently
  • Enquiries about your lifestyle and advice on diet, alcohol and smoking
  • Advice on good cleaning practices and ways to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy
  • Diagnosis of any problems and explaining a treatment plan
  • A clear explanation of any treatment you may require, the costs involved and any risk it may incur
  • A mouth cancer screening, to check for early signs or pre-cancerous changes in the mouth and throat
  • Advice on your next course of action and booking a return appointment
