What Are Dental Examinations?

Examinations are comprehensive dental assessments provided by our experienced professionals to evaluate the overall health of your teeth and gums.

These examinations serve as the foundation of preventive dental care, enabling us to identify any potential issues or concerns before they escalate into more significant problems.

During a dental examination, our dedicated team will inspect your teeth for signs of decay, assess the condition of your gums, check for oral abnormalities, and perform necessary X-rays to uncover underlying issues.

We believe that regular dental examinations are essential for maintaining a lifelong smile and preventing dental complications.

A Visual Inspection Of Your Gums

During your dental examination, a crucial aspect is a meticulous visual inspection of your gums. This examination is an essential part of our commitment to your oral health.

Our skilled dental professionals will carefully examine your gums for any signs of redness, swelling, bleeding, or tenderness, which could indicate gum disease or other oral health issues.

We use specialised tools and techniques to assess the health of your gum tissue, checking for pockets or gaps between your teeth and gums—a common indicator of periodontal disease.

We also evaluate the overall colour and texture of your gums to ensure they are healthy and free from any abnormalities.

Our thorough gum examination allows us to detect and address gum-related issues early, preventing potential complications and ensuring your overall oral health.

If any concerns are identified, we will discuss them with you and develop a personalised treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain healthy gums, promoting a lifetime of smiles and oral well-being.
