Tumut Dental Clinic

What is a dental exam?

Often dental diseases are a slow, painless process, and you do not experience any symptoms until much later. By this time, the tooth structure and supporting gums may already have extensive damage. At Tumut Dental Clinic, we do not want this to happen to you. We do not want a small issue to grow into a complicated dental situation.

 So dental exams help assess your tooth and gum health regularly. Dental exams involve:

  • Comprehensive oral checks, including cancer screenings
  • Digital x-rays to uncover any lingering or evolving health issues
  • Charting
  • Professional teeth cleans
  • Clinical photography

Your dentist in Tumut can show you up-close images of your teeth and gums as well using an intraoral camera. This helps you better understand why a treatment has been ordered, and it allows you to make informed decisions about your oral care.

At Tumut Dental Clinic, it is our goal to make sure you and your family members enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth—preventive dentistry plays a vital role in that goal.

It’s also important to remember that oral health contributes to overall wellness.

If you would like to arrange a dental exam and teeth clean for yourself, or yourself and your family members, we welcome your call.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
