Ensuring Optimal Oral Health For Life

At The Good Dentist, our team believes in the power of preventive care to secure optimal oral health. Regular dental check-ups are an essential aspect of maintaining your smile’s health and longevity.

Prevention is paramount when it comes to maintaining optimal oral health for your teeth, tongue, and gums. Dentists can identify potential problems during routine check-ups and provide treatment before they escalate into larger issues. Early detection is key, and regular dental check-ups are the best way to help catch an issue before it becomes a problem (for the health of your mouth and your bank account.)

Comprehensive Dental Check-Up

During a comprehensive dental check-up, our dentists begin with an oral examination that may incorporate 3D and X-ray imaging for an accurate assessment of your mouth.

Education on proper oral hygiene practices is also reinforced, recommending effective teeth cleaning and flossing habits. This helps patients maintain good dental habits and awareness of any potential concerns or changes in their dental health.

Visual Inspection

During the visual inspection, your dentist will use a mirror and light to examine the surfaces of your teeth, gums and tongue for any signs of decay, disease, discolouration, or damage.

3D Inspection

A 3D inspection involves using digital technology to create a three-dimensional image of your teeth, allowing your dentist to identify any issues that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Dental X-Ray

Dental X-rays allow dentists to see what is happening below the surface. X-rays provide valuable information about the condition of your teeth, jawbone, nerves, sinuses, and tooth roots that cannot be seen during a routine visual examination.

Tartar and Plaque Build-Up

Tartar buildup inspection involves measuring the amount of plaque and tartar that has accumulated on your teeth, which is important for preventing gum disease and enhancing the overall look of your smile.

Bite Assessment

Checking your bite and jawbone involves assessing the alignment of your teeth and how they fit together when you bite down, as well as checking for any signs of jawbone deterioration.

Oral Cancer Inspection

The assessment of oral cancer risk factors involves looking for any signs of abnormalities in the mouth, such as lumps, bumps, or lesions, that may indicate the presence of oral cancer.

Clean and Scale

After a thorough examination, your teeth will be professionally cleaned. A dental scale and polish are used to remove plaque, surface stains, and bacteria – and a fluoride treatment may also be included if necessary.

Prevention is Key

Prevention is truly so much better than cure when it comes to your teeth. We are living longer (than our ancestors) and so our teeth need to stay strong and healthy as we age. This means regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining optimal oral health.

At The Good Dentist, we see our patients as part of our dental family and want to help ensure good oral health for life, which is why our comprehensive dental check-ups include a thorough oral examination, that assesses your teeth, gums, tongue, and jawbone, checking for signs of decay, disease, discolouration, or damage.

Our team of professionals will make sure your visit is informative, comfortable, and even enjoyable.
