Oral Exam

Oral Exam Dentist

Remember, a dental problem only gets more complex and more costly over time, so remember to have an oral health exam twice a year.

An oral exam is a way of determining your overall dental and oral health, no matter what your age. Oral health is the absence of any active disease in the mouth. Good oral health becomes more important as you get older, protecting against tooth loss and the problems that go with it.

Regular oral exams or check-ups help you develop a solid relationship with your dentist so that he or she can help you preserve your strong, healthy and beautiful smile throughout your lifetime.

Further regular care is all about preventative dentistry, looking after your existing teeth and preventing the dental treatment that may be required as a result of the damaging effects of tooth decay and gum disease.

It is recommended that patients book an oral exam or check-up with our dentists at least every six months. These appointments can help to detect cavities and other oral problems early, reducing the potential for major dental treatment.

An oral health exam involves:

  • A comprehensive examination of teeth, gums, and the soft tissue lining of your mouth, as well as other structures such as your tongue, and upper palate
  • Taking images of the jaw and teeth using our digital x-rays or 3D scanner for more complex treatments
  • Ensuring that existing problems are identified and dealt with before they become a significant dental issue
  • Developing a personalised treatment plan outlining the various treatments the patient may require and the estimated costs associated
  • Educating the patient to modify their oral hygiene and dietary habits
  • Educating the patient about lifestyle choices, such as smoking, that may affect not only their oral health but their general well-being as well.

Remember, a dental problem only gets more complex and more costly over time, so remember to have an oral health exam twice a year.
