Treatments > Dental Health Check / Examination

At Cleary FitzGerald we believe in taking a comprehensive and holistic approach to your dental health. Your examination with us is not just a 'quick check-up', it is far more than that!

At your initial assessment and all recalls thereafter, we focus on at least fourteen different aspects of your dental health, and tell you how healthy you are in each area, each time.

We will examine:

  • the overall health of your teeth and dental restorations
  • the health of your gums, examining you for bleeding, inflammation and bone loss
  • your tongue, lips, cheeks, glands and jaw, performing an oral cancer check
  • your jaw joints to check that they are correctly aligned
  • for excessive wear on your teeth
  • under old fillings, between your teeth and under your teeth by taking low dose digital X-rays when necessary, to evaluate any hidden problems

Our dentists use intra oral cameras to show you what we see in your mouth and give you all the advice you need to get or stay dentally healthy.

We focus not only on your dental health but also on your general health. A regular updating of your medical status allows us to inform you of the effect that any new medication or changes in your wellbeing may have on your dental health, or any planned treatments.

At the end of the examination, we will discuss our findings with you and design a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and budget. We encourage you to ask any questions you might have so that you can decide confidently how to proceed.

Ultimately, our goal is to establish your smile on a solid foundation that will provide you with excellent dental health throughout your entire life.

We encourage all adults to visit us twice a year for a full Dental Health Check, and to book hygiene visits as necessary to help keep dentally healthy.

Hopefully you won't need any treatment, but if you do, read about our range of restorative options. If you are looking for ways to improve your smile, read about our cosmetic options.
