Examinations, scale and cleans
Regular check-ups in conjunction with good home oral health care habits are the basis for long term preventative dentistry. It is perhaps the most important aspect of dentistry that is often overlooked by the patient as teeth and gums often have no symptoms until disease is in its advanced stages such as toothaches and gum abscesses.
We take pride and allow the time to deliver comprehensive examinations and a thorough scale and clean. It must be stressed that regular teeth cleaning is one of the most important procedures for maintaining teeth for a life-time. We also recommend the use of digital radiography (x-rays) with minimal radiation dosages on a 2-yearly basis as x-rays are still the best ways to detect early signs of tooth decay and gum/bone disease that is often invisible to the naked eye.
