Diagnostic Examinations

For a step above a routine dental check-up, we offer premium diagnostic examinations using our state-of-the-art technology and expertise. 


These detailed evaluations form the cornerstone of our approach to oral health, allowing us to identify potential issues before they escalate, ensuring you get the most effective treatment plans tailored to your unique needs.


How is a diagnostic examination different from a routine check-up?


While both are crucial components of comprehensive oral health care, they serve different purposes. Both involve basic assessments of your teeth and gums, but routine check-ups are preventative in nature. In comparison, diagnostic examinations are more detailed and performed when you have a specific problem or symptom that needs further investigation.


What happens during a diagnostic examination?


A diagnostic examination is a thorough check performed by dental professionals to assess the health of your mouth, teeth, gums and jaw, as well as investigate a particular concern discovered during your routine check-up.


Each exam begins with a careful visual check of your oral cavity, where we examine your teeth for cavities and gums for signs of disease. We also check the overall condition of your mouth, looking for symptoms of other oral health issues, like oral cancer.


We then take detailed images of your teeth and jaw using our advanced X-ray technology. Here, we can identify hidden problems such as tooth decay, impacted teeth, jawbone damage, etc. 


What happens after the diagnostic examination?


Depending on our findings, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to restore your oral health. We may also provide referrals for dental specialists should your condition require more advanced care.


Our diagnostic examinations go beyond just identifying potential problems — they provide a holistic overview of your oral health, arming our dental professionals with the necessary information to create a customised treatment plan specifically for you.
