Dental Checkup and Teeth Cleaning

Regular dental checkups and teeth cleaning are essential for optimum oral health. Your dentist or dental hygienist will undertake a fully comprehensive dental examination and teeth cleaning at your initial dental visit.

Your check-up dental examinations with your dentist and dental hygienist will include the following:

  • Gum disease evaluation: An examination of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth for signs of periodontal disease.
  • Oral cancer screening: An examination of the face, lips, neck, gums, tongue, throat and tissues to check for signs of oral cancer.
  • Tooth decay examination: All surfaces of the teeth are checked for decay using special dental instruments.
  • Existing restoration examination: Check the integrity of existing fillings, crowns, etc.
  • Diagnostic x-rays (radiographs): X-rays are performed to detect tooth decay, tumors, bone loss and cysts, and are used to help determine the position of your teeth and their roots.
    On Examination your teeth will be x-rayed ( if necessary) and the result of your x-ray and a charting of your teeth will be recorded onto our computer system.

Following your examination and teeth cleaning your treatment plan will be drawn up and discussed with you to suit your requirements. You will be given an estimate of your costs for carrying out your treatment plan.  So as to avoid any confusion, do not hesitate to raise any queries with your dentist in relation to both your treatment plan and the cost of your treatment so that you fully understand it.
