Dental Examination

Looking after you teeth and mouth is very important. A dental examination involves a dentist checking your teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy and identifying any potential problems that may require treatment.

It is also an opportunity for a patient to express any concerns to the dentist about the condition or appearance of their mouth and to see what solutions are available to improve it.
