Examinations and X-rays

We provide comprehensive examinations using the latest advances in technology, such as digital x-rays and intra-oral cameras that produce detailed images of the teeth revealing the condition of your oral health. We listen to your concerns and understand your needs in order to provide you with the options for treatment. We fully explain to you the treatment options in easy to understand language. Written treatment plans are provided at the completion of the examination.

We take x-rays only when necessary to detect decay between teeth and areas not visible to the naked eye. Since gum and bone problems happen slowly over time, they are often not felt or detected from the surface. X-rays are important for detecting bone loss and infections at root surfaces. Many people are understandably concerned about excessive radiation. Utilising the recent advances in modern technology, we are proud to offer a healthier approach to prevention. We take digital radiographs, which use upto 80% less x-radiation than conventional techniques. These are safer for the environment as no chemicals are used, easily stored on a computer to be reproduced, and the images are available to be viewed immediately.
