Reviewing teeth and gums

Examinations

Regular check ups are an important part of maintaining good dental health. At these appointments we will check both your teeth and gums as well as screening for mouth cancer and other diseases of the mouth.

We use digital x-rays to examine the teeth in detail for signs of decay, damage or infection.

Scaling and polishing ensures that both the teeth and gums stay healthy by removing build ups of plaque and calculus that can be difficult to remove with a brush alone, but can be damaging if left.

If any problems are detected a treatment plan will be provided including likely costs and any options there may be for you to consider.

If all is well another examination appointment will be scheduled and you will be given any instructions needed on how to keep your mouth healthy in the meantime.
