Checkups & Consultations
A routine check-up or consultation involves an examination of your teeth, gums and mouth. This is a thorough procedure which will help prevent minor problems from becoming big problems and to uncover any present conditions.
We will need to review your oral health practices, your current medical background and current concerns.
- We begin by discussing your general health, any medications you're taking, your oral health and hygiene habits as well as your personal concerns.
- We then conduct your oral examination and look for things like cavities and to see if plaque or tartar is present. We check your gums for consistency and the presence of any deepening gaps between the teeth which might indicate gum disease. We also check your tongue, throat, face and neck for signs of swelling or discomfort.
- Finally we discuss any findings and treatment recommendations, and confirm if X-Rays are required. We talk about best practices for general health as well as oral hygiene and ongoing maintenance.
AFTER YOUR CHECKUP OR CONSULTATION
After your checkup we suggest scheduling your next checkup with Paramount Dental Sydney for a professional tooth clean as well as making any future appointments for more complex treatments.
Be sure to take the time to maintain good dental hygiene practices and follow the suggestions our professional dental technicians and practitioners.
