Comprehensive Dental Examination

An examination of your teeth and soft tissues.

  • All necessary X-rays and intra-oral photos.

During this examination, our experienced dentist/therapist will evaluates the condition of your teeth, checks for cavities, and assesses your gum health. We pay close attention to every detail to ensure your oral health is optimal.

Plaque and Calculus Management

Plaque, a film of bacteria, can accumulate on your teeth, leading to various dental problems. When left untreated, plaque hardens into calculus, which can’t be removed through regular brushing alone. Our dental team uses specialized instruments to remove:

  • Plaque
  • Food debris
  • Bacteria
  • Calculus

This thorough cleaning process involves scaling, polishing, and flossing to leave your teeth feeling fresh and clean.

Comprehensive Dental X-rays

Dental X-rays are a critical diagnostic tool for detecting and preventing oral diseases that may not be visible to the naked eye. Our dental team uses X-rays to:

  • Identify hidden infections or abnormalities
  • Provide a complete assessment of your teeth and mouth
  • Detect decay between teeth
  • Evaluate bone loss
  • Examine root and tooth positions
  • Identify abscesses, as well as cancerous or non-cancerous tumours

By catching dental issues early with the help of X-rays, you can save both your tooth and valuable time and money.

Orthopantomogram (OPG)

An OPG is a comprehensive X-ray image of your mouth, showing details of your jaw, teeth, roots, wisdom teeth, and surrounding structures. This diagnostic tool helps us:

  • Screen your overall dental health
  • Assess wisdom teeth
  • Investigate dental pain
  • Evaluate the need for dental implants
  • Detect potential cancerous or non-cancerous tumours

Your dentist will discuss whether an OPG is required based on your specific dental needs.

Pit & Fissure Sealants

Pit and fissure sealants are protective coatings applied to the deep grooves of your molars. These grooves can easily trap bacteria and plaque, leading to tooth decay. We recommend sealants when:

  • Deep grooves are present in your molars
  • Routine brushing alone cannot keep these grooves clean

The sealant application process is quick and straightforward. It involves cleaning the tooth, applying a special solution, and setting the liquid sealant with a bright light. This creates a smooth barrier over the grooves, reducing the risk of decay.

Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride is a natural mineral known for its effectiveness in preventing tooth decay. While you receive fluoride from various sources, additional treatments may be recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist to:

  • Reduce the risk of future decay
  • Halt any existing decay

Fluoride treatments are often performed after your regular scale and clean, providing an extra layer of protection for your teeth. Fluoride helps maintain and enhance your oral health, and our team will determine if it’s suitable for your specific needs.

Our comprehensive dental examination and preventive services are designed to ensure your oral health remains in top condition. We prioritize early detection and prevention to keep your smile healthy and vibrant.
