Periodic Dental Examinations

Periodic Exams at Shine Dentists, GungahlinHow can you maintain the best possible oral hygiene? Simple. Regular visits to the dental team at Shine Dentists, Gungahlin and brushing and flossing combine for a powerful tool for the early detection of decay, damage, oral cancer and gum disease.

We usually recommend bi-yearly visits, though those with weakened immunity or gum disease may need to be seen more often.

A Comprehensive Look at Your Oral Health

At your periodic examination, your dentist will check for

  • Signs of breakage or decay
  • Stability of existing restorations
  • Any stage of gum disease
  • Jaw joint issues

Will I need X-rays?

X-rays are usually taken about every 2-3 years unless a new problem warrants a look inside of your teeth. If further work is needed, you and your dentist will work together to create a treatment plan and all expenses involved, and you can then book those appointments.

If needed, we’ll refer you to a specialist for treatment.
