Your First Visit

What can I expect on my first visit?

On your first visit, we want to obtain a thorough overview of your general oral health. That includes the teeth, gums and soft tissues in the mouth. We will carefully examine for the presence of decay and gum disease.

Photographs are taken using an intra oral camera for intra oral pictures or with a standard camera for extra oral pictures. Photographs allow visualisation of any dental issues and better understanding of the treatment that might be needed. They are also necessary in some cases for treatment planning and smile design.

Radiographs (X-rays) are recommended on your first visit to ensure a complete and thorough diagnosis of your oral condition is obtained.

Why do I need dental radiographs (“x-rays”)?

Dental radiographs (“x-rays”) are necessary for proper diagnosis. Teeth that might look intact on appearance can actually have advanced decay that can only be detected via radiographs.

Treatment planning

If our assessment identifies the need for any treatment, we will make sure your treatment needs are explained and any questions answered.

At the end of the examination, a treatment plan is drawn out for you which gives you an overview of what treatment is required.

Our priority is to advise you as to the best treatment modalities suitable for your case as well as to put in place preventative measures to ensure long term maintenance of your oral health.
