A warm welcome to Proactive Dental
Most first appointments will involve a comprehensive examination by one of our dentists to assess your current oral health; this may also include x-rays.
They will then analyse your results and discuss your treatment options. We encourage you to ask questions so you can make a fully informed choice about your dental care.
Your teeth will be visually examined for signs of plaque, tartar and tooth decay. Your gums will also be examined for puffiness or discolouration, which are signs of gum disease. A full set of dental X-rays may also be taken during your dental exam, to enable your dentist to see below the surfaces of your teeth. Dental exams typically end with a dental cleaning, to remove surface stains and buildup.
