What Does A Dental Checkup Involve?
At The Good Dentist we ensure every patient receives the same high level of care whether you are a new patient or a returning patient who has chosen and entrusted our team with your continued oral health care.
Your dental checkup will include a visual and 3D inspection of your teeth, tongue, and gums, a measure of tartar buildup on your teeth, a check of your bite and jawbone, plus an assessment of oral cancer risk factors.
After a thorough examination, a cleaning will take place. A dental scale is carried out to remove plaque, surface stain, and bacteria, followed by teeth polishing with a fluoride treatment, if appropriate.
A dental examination will cover:
- examination of mouth, teeth, gums, tongue for decay, disease, or other issues
- discussion around general health and if you have been any dental concerns
- recommendations about effective cleaning and flossing habits
- halitosis check, if you’re experiencing bad breath
- advice about preventing tooth decay and gum disease
The Good Dentist is happy to discuss all your dental cleaning and checkup requirements and make recommendations on the timing of your next checkup.

What Does A Dental X-Ray Involve?
The Good Dentist prides themselves on using state-of-the-art modern technology. This involves digital dental x-rays and intraoral cameras which help us identify decay and disease.
X-rays allow us to spot issues before they become major (and expensive) problems. Cavities that aren’t fixed in a timely manner can and will eventually develop into root canals or tooth extractions, which cost much more than fillings especially if leading to needing tooth replacements such as dental implants.
Why Regular Dental Visits Are Important
Regular dental cleaning and checkups are essential in the prevention of cavities, decay, gum disease, plaque build-up, halitosis, or more nasty problems such as suspicious growths or oral cancer.
While you may brush and floss every day, there are some areas in between your teeth or on the back of your molars that might be hard to reach. Only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove these deposits during your cleaning procedure.
Visiting a dentist regularly will not only maintain your oral health but also reduce the risk of other serious health problems. We all know a smile is our best accessory, so we encourage you to look after your asset.As the saying goes, you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone. Look after your teeth and they’ll look after you.
Our professional team recommends a full dental checkup and clean every 6 months.
