Good oral hygiene, early detection and maintenance.
Why are dental examinations important?
Regular dental examinations are very important and help you to maintain oral health. The process allows the dentist to check for early signs of dental problems, such as decay or gum disease, and therefore take measures to prevent the problems from becoming serious. Tooth decay can, if left untreated, cause the total loss of a tooth within a year.
Our examination is a systematic process during which we will investigate many facets of your oral and systemic health in order to identify potential issues or concerns and develop a uniquely customized treatment plan that is catered towards maximizing your oral health while meeting your goals and expectations.
