General Examinations

Dental examinations help maintain your oral health. Getting your teeth examined regularly will help us pick up on any problems early, avoiding more complex treatment. Contact the friendly team at Camira Dental today to book a dental examination.

How Dental Examinations Work

When you come in for a dental examination, our dentists do a thorough check-up of your mouth. The examination is a full assessment of your oral hygiene status, including the health of your gums and teeth as well as checking your jaw joint. In addition, we’ll inspect soft tissues for oral cancer screening.

In most cases, a dental examination for adults requires x-rays, which can be done at our clinic for an extra charge. Usually, however, we direct patients to visit a Medicare bulk billing x-ray facility nearby for a free screening before their appointment. X-rays are essential for diagnosing problems with your teeth, gums and jaws that are not detectable by visual inspection alone.

The Cost of Dental Examinations

At Camira Dental, our focus is to provide quality dental care to the local community. The goal of our regular dental examinations is to help you avoid more costly treatment. We value honesty in our patient communication, never engaging in upselling.

A full treatment plan with the costs and order of treatment priority is discussed with both new and existing patients. This provides a clear way forward, as well as an opportunity for both the dentist and the patient to get to know each other. We are always happy to explain your options to you in detail, offering you a clear understanding of likely outcomes.

What to expect on your visit

If you suspect you might need to visit the dentist, whether for a regular check-up or a specific problem, the first step is to give us a call. Our friendly dental assistants can help you with most inquiries, booking you in for a further consultation or treatment.

When you come in, your dentist will have a discussion with you about your needs and propose treatment. At Camira Dental, we take pride in telling the truth about patient needs, never engaging in up-selling.

You’ll get an upfront quote on the full cost of treatment before starting. If needed, it’s possible to prioritise treatment to spread out the cost. We won’t start any treatment without your verbal consent to proceed with the plan.

We use innovative pain-free techniques, providing gentle care. If you have sensitive teeth or a fear of the dentist, don’t hesitate to let our team know. We’ll do our best to make you feel comfortable during your visit.

Join our regular dental check-up scheme

At Camira Dental, we generally recommend booking in for a dental scale and clean every six months. However, this will differ based on your situation, such as how prone you might be to tooth decay or gum disease. That’s why we encourage everyone to join our regular dental check-up scheme as a way forward to good dental and general health. This way, we can monitor and maintain your oral health over time.

Please note that when you sign up the regular check-up scheme, appointments are bulk billed to your health fund (conditions apply).
