You can expect a check-up at Thorpe Lea Dental to take around an hour, depending on what you need.
Meet and greet
When you arrive, you’ll be taken into your treatment room and introduced to your dental nurse. The dentist will have already reviewed your patient forms or previous notes and will have a chat with you about any changes in your oral health, and the reason for your visit.
Teeth and gum assessment
Your dentist will perform a thorough assessment of your teeth looking for signs of any decay and existing restorations, and a basic gum check to gauge if you need a more in-depth periodontal exam. We’ll also take a full oral digital scan and photos if necessary.
X-Rays or screening
We’ll perform an oral cancer screening at your dental check-ups as a precaution, but there’s usually nothing to worry about. We’re looking for anything unusual such as swelling, irritation that doesn’t go away naturally, or abnormal lumps and bumps.
Advice and treatment plan
Sometimes a check-up with reveal some dental issues that might need to be addressed. If you need any further treatment your dentist will put together a treatment plan including cost estimates and timeframe. Otherwise, you’re all set until your next routine check-up!
We prefer to prevent problems from occurring rather than simply fixing things when they go wrong, so we recommend regular dental hygiene treatments to keep your teeth and gums clean, reduce the build-up of plaque and bacteria and prevent tooth decay.
Sometimes at a dental check-up we’ll discover decay or a cavity that needs to be treated with a small filling - a straightforward, comfortable procedure using a local anaesthetic.
Your dentist will go through your options before the treatment, as well as your filling options.
Are you unhappy with your discoloured, crooked or uneven teeth?
Porcelain crowns are carefully crafted to look natural and blend in with the rest of your teeth. The aesthetically superior crowns preferred by our Thorpe Lea dentists will not lead to dark metallic lines around your gums, leaving you will a beautiful smile you will feel confident in showing off.
Effective dental care starts early with thorough brushing techniques and oral health habits, so we encourage families to bring children in as soon as their first tooth appears and return for regular check-ups to help maintain long-term dental health.
If you’re ready to book a check-up at Thorpe Lea Dental, fill in your details and we’ll be in touch to arrange a time for your appointment. We look forward to meeting you!
“Very professional and friendly. All staff from the front desk to the dentist are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.”
