What Does A Dental Checkup Involve?
A dental checkup at Portway includes a thorough examination of your whole mouth including your teeth and soft palette. Our team will diligently check over each aspect of your mouth to identify any problems, ensuring we can offer you the best treatment.
We will look at your natural teeth, as well as any dentistry that has been carried out previously.
You may also wish to book in to see our dental hygienist, which will take a more comprehensive look at your oral hygiene. Our hygienist will provide a deep clean of your teeth while advising you of any changes needed to your brushing technique.
Also, we will check your entire head and neck for swellings, salivary issues, unusual bumps, lymph nodes and other possible concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions
Emergency NHS Dentists in Wythenshawe - Can I Book In?
In addition to providing general dentistry, we also provide a range of emergency dental treatments – although these won’t be covered as part of your monthly price.
Reasons you may require an emergency dentist include a broken or knocked out tooth, missing filling or crown, unexplained tooth pain, bleeding gums, abscesses, exposed nerves or a swollen mouth or jaw.
Please contact us at the earliest instance if you have any of the above symptoms or any other concerns that may be considered a dental emergency.
Visiting The Dentist While Pregnant
Please inform us if you are pregnant before undertaking any treatments with us. We may advise you to delay certain treatments until later in your pregnancy or post delivery. However, emergency work such as root canals or tooth extractions may still be necessary during your pregnancy.
If you are currently pregnant then it’s important to keep up with your dental care, including regular checkups and cleanings. As your hormones can fluctuate during pregnancy, you may notice changes in your gums. Therefore, preventative treatments can help keep gum disease and infections at bay.
NHS dental treatment is free for those who are pregnant or if you have had a baby in the last 12 months.
How Often Should I Visit The Dentist?
The general rule is every 6 to 12 months depending on the general condition of your teeth. We will be happy to advise when you should book in for your next appointment on an individual basis.
Keeping up your dentist visits is extremely beneficial. It will allow us to spot any issues early so we can offer preventative advice, in addition to carrying out any necessary treatments promptly.
When Should I Take My Child To The Dentist For The First Time?
You should book a dentist appointment for your child as soon as their milk teeth appear, which is usually around the 6-12 month age.
The initial appointments will help your child get used to visiting the dentist from an early age. As well as giving a thorough check of their teeth, we can help advise on the best practices for brushing and oral hygiene.
Family dental care on the NHS is free for children up until the age of 18, or those under 19 and in full-time education.
