Comprehensive Oral Examination (item code 011)The dentist will carefully check your teeth, gums and general oral environment and record the condition of these structures. This evaluation includes:
- A visual check.
- Charting of all your teeth.
- A gentle exploration of your teeth and gums for signs of decay or disease.
- Photos from inside your mouth using a small hand held camera.
- A discussion of your normal brushing and flossing routine.
Digital Dental X-Rays (item code 022)We recommend all first time patients get x-rays so our dentists' can really see what’s going on below the surface. Typical x-rays for new patients include two bitewing x-rays. We use digital x-rays which are low dose dental x-rays and are on the screen in seconds and recorded to your file, the image can then be manipulated using software to further enhance the diagnostic value of the x-ray. We will describe what we see, and if any treatment is needed, we will explain options and procedures in language you can understand. Verbal and written quotes will be given for any treatment agreed upon.
Scale & Clean (item 114)
It is recommended that having your teeth cleaned regularly at the dentist is a very important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy. The dentist will gently remove any soft plaque or hardened tartar ( calculus - hardened, calcified plaque that is stuck to your tooth ).
These deposits are sometimes visible, above the gum or hidden under the gum where the gum and tooth meet. Plaque and calculus are teeming with particularly nasty bacteria and if not removed cause decay, gum shrinkage, bleeding gums and bad breath. In severe cases this leads to a chronic Gum Disease or Periodontitis.
Flouride treatment (item 121)
This is concentrated fluoride painted on to the tooth surface to strengthen that surface and to help protect them from the acids and bacteria in your mouth that cause decay. You shouldn’t eat or drink for at least 30 minutes afterwards to allow your teeth sufficient time to absorb the fluoride and repair any tiny areas of decay.
We will describe what we see, and if any treatment is needed, we will explain options and procedures in language you can understand. Verbal and written quotes will be given for any treatment agreed upon.
Depending upon the results of your comprehensive oral examination, your dentist will then recommend the appropriate treatment plan for your oral health and wellbeing.
