Dental examinations in Melbourne
Regular dental examinations are a vital part of your preventative dental plan and we strongly suggest you visit us every six months for dental examinations.
What is a Dental Examination?
During your dental examination, we will closely examine the inside of your mouth, including your teeth and gums. Your dental exam allows us to assess your current dental health and to see if there have been any changes since your last visit to St Vincent’s Dental Centre in Melbourne. A dental examination is non-invasive and painless as no treatment is provided during a dental check-up. By keeping a close eye on your dental health, we can monitor any small changes and if needed, we will provide the most appropriate treatment to treat any problems. Dental examinations are an easy and cost-effective way for you to maintain optimal dental health.
What to Expect During a Dental Examination?
One of our highly skilled dentists will gently examine each tooth and all your gums for any signs of problems. Oral cancer screenings are carried out periodically to check for any changes to your oral tissues, which include your tongue, lips, cheeks and the roof and floor of your mouth. If required, we will take dental x-rays or photos of your mouth to examine an area more closely and to help us explain any problems more easily and clearly.
How Much Will a Dental Examination Cost?
The cost of a dental examination can vary depending on whether any digital dental x-rays are required, but it is a reasonably priced and highly affordable procedure. We know it is often easy to put off regular dental examinations, especially if you feel your mouth is healthy, but we urge you not to do this. If we do discover anything is wrong, treatment is likely to be quicker and less invasive than waiting for the problem to develop, by which time you are more likely to need emergency dental care. It is an excellent way to maintain your natural teeth, we hope for life.
