Routine examinations


During your routine dental examination, your dental health will be assessed in detail. We will check your teeth, gum condition, and overall health of mouth and jaw joints, and screen for oral cancer. We encourage you to discuss any concerns you have about your teeth or your mouth. 

All our patients, based on their dental and oral health, receive advice customised for them and we plan for any treatment that may be required.

Routine dental examinations take place between 3 months to 24 months, depending on your need.


Dental X-rays


At Hounds Road Dental Practice, we use up to date technology for taking and processing X-rays. The digital scanning technique provides one of the best instant images while still keeping the size of radiographic film small and therefore comfortable in your mouth.

We advise dental x-rays based on your dental health. Dental radiographs pose no significant dose-related health risks, as the radiation dose is kept at a minimum. We encourage you to ask your dentist about the need for radiographs if you are concerned.
