Dental Examinations

This is a critical part of the dental appointment.  At your first visit, and at subsequent check-ups, the dentist will carry out a thorough check of not just your oral health, but also the health of the peri-oral tissues.

The Benefits

Regular checking of teeth, gums, oral and peri-oral health allows us to catch problems at an earlier stage.  This generally means that they will be easier to treat and that the treatment will have a higher chance of success.

The Process

Our professional team of dentists will start by checking jaw joint movements, lymph nodes and facial symmetry before she even looks inside your mouth!

There are several conditions which can show signs within the mouth, since the dentist is one of the healthcare professionals you see on a regular basis, they will always check for signs of these conditions along with checking for your tooth and gum health. To do this they will look at your cheeks, tongue, below the tongue and the palate.

To check for gum and tooth health, our dentists carry out a full dental examination. They conducts a Basic Periodontal Examination (BPE) for every adult at every check-up. They also examines each tooth, looking for signs of caries, checking the integrity of existing fillings and restorative treatment.

As part of the dental examination, x-rays may be recommended.  These usually come in the form of ‘Bitewings’, small x-rays that show the top and bottom back teeth on each side. All x-rays are taken using the most advanced digital equipment. Digital x-rays require dramatically less radiation than the old film system, they are fast, save straight to the computer for you to see, and allow us to more easily diagnose problems at an early stage.

At the end of the examination, your dentist will explain findings, and give you a customised treatment plan for your consideration. Please do ask our team any questions at all.  Your treatment is under your control, and we will only go ahead with the treatment to which you have consented.

The Cost

The dental examination and consultation fee varies depending on the complexity of each patient’s needs.  However the fees are usually deducted from subsequent treatment charges, in effect, they are usually waived.

Dental Examinations

This is a critical part of the dental appointment.  At your first visit, and at subsequent check-ups, the dentist will carry out a thorough check of not just your oral health, but also the health of the peri-oral tissues.

Dental Fillings

Fillings are placed to restore teeth to function and appearance after trauma, caries removal or tooth wear. Fillings can be separated into two categories – silver coloured or tooth coloured. However we no longer place silver coloured fillings at our clinic.

Periodontal Treatment

Also known as non-surgical periodontal treatment or gum treatment, this is the treatment for people with periodontal or gum disease.  When you attend your regular check-up, our dentist will always check your gum health.

Regular Maintenance

This is the regular maintenance treatment that is normally sufficient for most people to maintain oral health. In addition to the dental check-up it involves scaling & polishing, fluoride treatment, and sometimes special tests depending on your specific needs.

Root Canal Treatments

When the nerve of a tooth dies, or becomes infected, you may experience pain and swelling. This can cause a severe toothache in extreme cases. Root canal treatment allows us to remove the infected or necrotic nerve while saving the tooth.

Tooth Extractions

Extraction is the treatment to take a tooth out under local anaesthetic. It is usually done because a tooth can no longer be restored, is too mobile, or for orthodontic treatment.
