What is a dental examination?

A dental examination, or check-up, is a comprehensive assessment of your oral health conducted by a dentist. These regular check-ups are crucial for detecting and preventing dental issues early, ensuring your teeth and gums remain healthy.

What do we include in our examinations?

  • Comprehensive oral examination: Our dentists conduct a detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth to identify any signs of decay, disease, or other issues.
  • Professional cleaning: During your check-up, a dental hygienist will perform a professional cleaning to remove plaque and tartar build-up, leaving your teeth feeling fresh and clean.
  • X-rays: We use advanced digital X-rays to get a clear picture of your teeth and jawbone health, helping us detect issues that are not visible to the naked eye.
  • Gum health assessment: We check your gums for any signs of gum disease and provide recommendations for maintaining healthy gums.
  • Oral cancer screening: As part of our comprehensive exam, we screen for any signs of oral cancer, ensuring early detection and treatment.
