What is a dental examination?

Regular dental check-ups play a key role in keeping your teeth, gums and mouth healthy. This can help check and maintain the health of your teeth, prevent dental issues, treat bad breath and keep you smiling.

Our examinations and check-ups include:

  • A tooth and gum examination
  • An intra-oral examination
  • A check of your jaw joint
  • A complete discussion of your oral health needs
  • X-rays (when appropriate)
  • Oral cancer screening
  • An estimate of fees for treatment

What happens during a dental examination?

Many people feel anxious when visiting the dentist for their regular check-up. But there’s no need to be afraid.

These examinations can help keep your oral health in tip-top shape and help prevent more serious issues in the future. We are also experienced in helping anxious patients – just ask if you need our support.

Your dentist will start by examining your teeth, gums and tongue and may take x-rays to understand what is happening in your mouth. If needed, the dentist may use tools such as small mirrors and scrapers to remove any plaque or tartar. You may also be referred for further treatment, if necessary.
