Examination & X-Rays

Getting a regular oral exam and x-rays is the best way to keep your smile sparkling.

What happens in a dental exam?

The Australian Dental Association recommends getting a dental exam every 6-months to make sure that your teeth are healthy. An examination is usually quick, taking no longer than an hour from start to finish.

During this time, Dr Varma will review your X-Rays, conduct a visual exam and look for inflammation, bleeding, periodontal pockets and calculus around and under the gum line. She will also check both the outside and inside of your mouth, your tongue and any other soft tissues.

If Dr Varma notices any serious issues, she may refer you to a specialist.

Your regular oral exam is also a great time to ask Dr Varma any questions or to raise any concerns that you may have.

It is also the best way to ensure your treatment in well maintained and that any issues with your teeth and mouth are dealt with before they become problematic.
