What happens at a dental check-up?

During a dental check-up, your dentist or dental therapist will examine and assess your teeth to see if there are any signs of dental problems. They can also see if your mouth is healthy and give you advice as to maintain good oral health. They will check for any tooth decay, or periodontal disease and check for any signs of oral cancer.

Why are dental check-ups important?

Dental check-ups are important for the early detection and prevention of dental diseases. The sooner caries or an anomaly is detected, the sooner it can be treated, without it progressing into something more serious. As an example, early caries detection can be treated with a small filling if necessary, however, if it is left for a long period of time the caries can spread towards the pulp and the chance of having a root canal treatment is increased.

Is a dental check-up painful?

Dental check-ups are generally not painful. The dentist will examine your mouth and teeth gently and may use specialised tools for cleaning and examining, but any discomfort is usually minimal.

Do I need to do anything before my dental check-up?

It's helpful to brush and floss your teeth before your appointment to ensure a clean mouth. Also, make a note of any concerns or questions you may have about your oral health to discuss with your dentist.

What happens if the dentist finds a problem during the check-up?

If the dentist identifies any issues, they will discuss treatment options and recommend a plan to address the problem. You should follow our recommendations for the best outcome.

How often should I have a dental check-up?

The frequency of dental check-ups can vary based on your individual oral health needs, but we recommend having a dental check-up once every 6 months.
