It is important to have a dental check up at least once a year. Regular dental examinations may prevent more serious dental problems which may go undetected and therefore untreated for an extended period of time. For continued or preventative dental care you can also ask our dental staff for advice regarding good oral hygiene techniques and dietary habits.
The dentist provides an initial examination of your teeth and gums. The examination may include special tests such as radiographs (x-rays). This will help the dentist identify any hidden decay or abnormalities present. The dentist will then discuss any dental problems that may have been identified during the examination, and will also answer any questions or concerns regarding treatments that are available.
Once any dental problems have been identified the dental treatment options available will be discussed so that a treatment plan can be decided upon.
