DENTAL Examination

A dental examination is much more comprehensive than most people are aware. During your exam we do not only check the teeth but also the gums, tongue, lips, cheeks, tonsils, jaw joints and head/neck for any potential problems. We may also need to take x-rays to look for tooth decay and assess your bone levels to make sure you do not have any gum disease.

The reason we check the rest of the mouth and head/neck is to make sure there are no serious problems such as oral cancers.

Frequently Asked Questions

This depends on your dental disease risk. Your dentist will typically see you anything from 3 months to 1 year. A dentist not only checks your teeth but will also carry out oral cancer screening during an examination appointment.

There are three main ways to do this:

  • Clean your teeth twice a day and clean in between them with floss or tepe brushes once a day
  • Have a good diet – it’s the frequency of sugars that cause a problem not the amount – so make sure not to snack in between meals and only drink water between meals.
  • Fluoride – use a fluoride toothpaste to help prevent decay
