Why Are Regular Examinations so Important?
Most people will need to visit Tooth Savers twice a year for a full examination. This doesn’t take very long and is a great way to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy for as long as possible. During your examination our dentists will gently examine the inside of your mouth, including your teeth and gums to detect any signs of problems. We normally only take digital dental x-rays approximately every two years for someone in reasonable dental health, but if we think there may be an issue with a tooth then an x-ray can allow us to take a much more detailed look.
What Happens If My Dentist Find Something Wrong?
If we do find something wrong and which we think requires treatment, as well as dental x-rays, we may also take images of the problem using our intraoral camera. After your examination is completed, we will use these images to explain how we think it is best treated. We will discuss all the available options with you and you’ll receive a written treatment plan showing the costs and time needed to complete the treatment.
If you would like more information, please speak to our friendly dental team on (02) 4647 5555 or visit us at Shop 36, 11-13 Main St, Mount Annan NSW 2567.
Regular Oral Cancer Screenings
Part of your regular examinations will include a screening for oral cancer. During this screening we will carefully examine all the tissues in your mouth and this includes your lips, the insides of your cheeks, the roof and floor of your mouth and your tongue. We are looking for any changes to the colour and texture of these tissues or any unexplained lumps and bumps or sore spots that don’t seem to be healing properly. Oral cancer screenings are very important as often the early signs of this disease are easily ignored and as a result this disease is often diagnosed during its later stages. By checking for early signs, we can make sure that anything suspicious is more fully examined. It’s unlikely to be oral cancer but we want to do everything possible to keep you healthy.
