Regular dental examinations are an excellent way to maintain good oral health. Any signs of disease can be quickly detected at a stage when it is much easier and quicker to treat.
Most people will need to book an examination with their dentist every six months but some may benefit from more frequent visits to our surgery.
Our dentist will visually examine the inside of your mouth, including your cheeks, gums and tongue. They will carefully check the condition of each tooth for any signs of cavities.
Your gums will be gently probed to check for any symptoms of gum disease or gingivitis. This is a common condition that is easily cured during the early stages but which can become much more serious if left to progress, eventually causing tooth loss.
Your teeth will be professionally cleaned, removing hardened plaque or tartar which reduces your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay.
As an added bonus, your mouth will feel much fresher and cleaner afterwards.
Dental x-rays are taken at regular intervals to show areas of your mouth that are hidden from view. At Banyule Dental Greensborough we use digital films that use much lower doses of radiation than conventional films.
At the end of the appointment we will discuss our findings with you, including recommendations for any treatment if required.
We provide the most comprehensive range of dental services in the Greensborough area
