Examination & Check-up
Dental check-ups are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. They allow your dentist to assess your oral health to see if you need any treatment.

You might not feel there's anything wrong with your teeth but it's essential to have regular check-ups to keep your mouth healthy, and make sure any issues are dealt with as soon as possible – or prevent them altogether. Remember, it’s much easier to prevent problems, than cure them.
What is a dental examination?
In a dental check-up appointment, your dentist will examine your teeth, mouth and gums to ensure your mouth is healthy. It’s also a chance for them to find any problems you might have. You should have regular check-ups and your dentist will advise you on how often this should be to best meet your individual needs..

What is involved in a dental examination?
At every examination, your dentist will

• Examine your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks and tongue
• Check for signs of mouth and face cancer
• Ask you questions about any problems or pain you’ve had since your last check-up.
• Give you advice on things you can do to improve your oral health such as recommendations on your diet, how to brush, maintaining oral hygiene, etc…

Your dentist may also take X-rays of your mouth to check for any hidden problems such as decay and bone loss due to gum disease .
If you have a build-up of plaque, you may be referred to a hygienist to perform a scale and polish. Sometimes, hygienist treatments are carried out after your check-up.
Your dentist will also check for any signs of mouth and face cancer or other general diseases that can affect the mouth at each dental check-up. If any further problems are identified, your dentist will recommend the next steps to take.
