Is it time for your dental examination (checkup)?
A routine examination takes between 15 minutes to 30 min, and includes
a check of your teeth and gums, as well as areas around your face and
neck. All of our examinations also include an oral cancer screening.
If X-rays are required, these are normally done during the same appointment.
The examination will include an in-depth consultation about any findings
and treatment options available to you.
Even for those who don’t have any teeth, a regular check of your gums
is essential to maintaining a healthy mouth.

A filling is used to repair damaged teeth, which may be due decay or fractures. Tooth decay often causes small or large cavities that trap food and cause further decay and can also cause pain.
Your dentist will assess your tooth and together you will decide on a silver or white filling.
Suffering from Sensitive Teeth?
Some of us may suffer with sensitive teeth, which can be intermittent, or linger for long periods at a time and be very uncomfortable. This can be particularly worse during the colder months, or when having hot or cold foods.
Please don’t delay in having this looked at, often a simple filling will resolve it.
Sometimes the sensitivity can be a sign of decay, a cracked tooth, receding gums or damaged enamel.
It may also be a sign that you are brushing too hard, and have exposed the yellow dentine underneath which can be sensitive.
If this causes concern or you are suffering from pain, then book in to see us.
