dental evaluation in hobart

The Australia Dental Association recommends that people visit their dentist for an evaluation a minimum of twice each year. Regular evaluations are recommended, so your dentist can spot any dental problems that are developing.

What does a dental evaluation include?

  • Periodontal screening for gum disease
  • Dental caries (cavities) screening
  • Deterioration of previous dental work screening
  • Oral cancer screening
  • TMJ and bite analysis
  • Cleaning to remove plaque and calculus (tartar) buildup and prevent tooth decay is sometimes possible at an evaluation visit
  • Digital dental x-rays (only when required)
  • Fluoride treatments to help in the prevention of tooth decay (only when required)
  • If we find a cavity during a checkup, your dentist will usually schedule a second appointment to fill it before it develops into a more severe problem.

As prevention is always better than a cure, regular dental evaluations can catch problems early before they become severe and expensive.
