We encourage our patients to attend regular examinations so that any potential problems can be identified and treated as soon as possible or even prevented all together. Your dentist will advise you how regularly you need to attend.
Both new and regular patients undergo a thorough dental examination at each check-up appointment. This includes
- Examination for dental decay
- Examination for periodontal disease (gum disease)
- Oral cancer screening
- Assessment of tooth wear
- Evaluation of any prospective risk factors for developing any of the above.
- X-rays may be taken to further check what the eyes cannot see.
At the end of your examination all treatment options will be discussed and a written treatment plan including treatment costs will be given.
