What to Expect During Your Exam

During your checkup, our dental providers will thoroughly and gently clean your teeth. We will also perform a comprehensive examination of your overall oral health, examining things like your jaw joint, how your teeth bite together, checking the health of your gums and screening for oral cancer.

The health of your jaw joints (TMJ) is crucial for proper function and can be affected by issues such as TMJ disorder. We’ll also take a look at your bite relationship (occlusion) to make sure that it’s aligned correctly and not causing any pain or discomfort.

In addition to your dental exam, we’ll evaluate the general health of your face, head, and neck. This includes checking for any signs of oral cancer, which can be caught early through regular screenings.

Professional Scale and Clean

When it comes to cleaning your teeth, we take a tailored approach. Depending on the severity of any disease or buildup, we’ll determine the most appropriate level of cleaning. For example, if your needs are simple, we will perform a basic scale and polish. But if there’s more advanced buildup or periodontal disease present, we may create an individualised care plan involving a more targeted deep clean.

Plan A Checkup Every Six Months

Your dental checkup is about more than just a routine scale and clean. It’s an opportunity for our dentist to thoroughly assess your oral health, address any concerns, and ensure that you leave with a healthy, beautiful smile.
