Understanding Your Health

To provide you with the best possible care, our dentist needs to understand your overall health. Your general health can impact your dental condition and may influence medications such as anaesthetics and antibiotics that we might use.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss any dental concerns or goals you have for your teeth. Our dentist will perform a comprehensive oral assessment to accurately plan the best treatments for your oral health.

Comprehensive Oral Examination

Our thorough examination includes:

  • Teeth and Bite: Assessing the alignment and condition of your teeth.

  • Restorations: Checking existing fillings, crowns, veneers, etc.

  • Gums and Bone: Evaluating the health of your gums and the surrounding bone.

  • Oral Cancer Screening: Examining your tongue, throat, cheeks, and lips.

  • Jaw Joint Evaluation: Assessing your jaw joints for any issues.

Dental X-rays

We will take dental X-rays to further investigate:

  • Decay inside or between the teeth

  • Bone loss

  • Abscesses or cysts on tooth roots

  • Root positions

Discussion and Treatment Plan

After the examination, our dentist will discuss the findings with you. We will create a personalise treatment plan with alternative options, detailing the benefits, risks, and costs of each procedure. This approach ensures you can make informed decisions about your long-term dental health.
