Dental Check Ups
Our dentists recommend regular check-ups for all our patients. At this appointment, we will record the overall health of your mouth and teeth and diagnose any problems you may have.
Dental check-ups – what’s involved
Our dental check ups involve a thorough examination starting with a soft tissue check of your lips, cheeks and tongue, screening for oral cancer and other abnormalities. Next, we will check the health of your gums and jawbone, as they are the foundation for your teeth. Last but not least, we will be examining each tooth individually for cavities and other problems.
Time for Dental Check Ups
Generally, we allow one full hour for a dental check ups for new patient exams, both to give you ample time to discuss all your options with your new dentist, but also to allow us to get to know you as you!
In most cases a clinical exam by itself is not enough to completely diagnose all problems. X-rays play a key role in diagnosing what is really going on inside your mouth and below your teeth and gums. In addition to revealing any problems that are not visible to the naked eye during the clinical exam, these initial x-rays will also provide us with a benchmark to compare against during your future visits.

Word For It…
My husband is 88yrs old. When he lost the cap of a front tooth he was reluctant to visit a dentist, fearing they would want to give him treatment he didn’t feel he needed at his age. We contacted The Dental Suite, explaining this and they were very understanding and we got an appointment with Dusan. Within an hour of meeting Dusan my husband left the surgery with a new crown and having had a full dental examination. He did not need an anaesthetic and felt no pain during the procedure. He said it was the best dental experience he has ever had and will have no qualms about going back for a check in 12 months time. We cannot speak highly enough of the friendly, caring professional treatment he received and would not hesitate to recommend this practice.
