General Dentistry Parramatta

It’s said that the best place to start is at the beginning, and with dentistry, it all begins with an initial comprehensive examination.

Comprehensive Family Dentistry

Our practice offers a full menu of family dentistry, cosmetic and restorative care options. We strive to deliver quality treatments in a pain-free environment, to help you enjoy healthy teeth for a lifetime. By equipping our patients with the educational resources they need-and facilitating gentle treatments-we better the overall wellness of the families we serve.

In a general dental visit, our team will go beyond simply cleaning and flossing your teeth–we’ll lay the groundwork for any future recommendations that can help improve your oral health.

What’s Involved in a Comprehensive Exam?

At Cure Dental, a dental exam includes the following:

  • Providing a thorough oral cancer screening, both visually and digitally (using the fingers), checking all of your lymph nodes, lips, tongue and the insides of your mouth and cheeks.
  • A series of diagnostic X-rays that provide a comprehensive view of your teeth and condition of your bones.
  • A periodontal examination, which includes a thorough screening and assessment of your gums – to check for any signs of periodontal (gum) disease.
  • An occlusal exam, to check for bite problems (underbite, overbite, crossbite), worn teeth, and jaw problems, such as TMJ.
  • A tooth-by-tooth check to identify cavities, examine prior treatment and restorations and the current condition of each. We will locate any chipped, cracked or missing teeth, or identify any work that needs to be performed such as protective sealants or fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth.

If at any time during your exam we discover a condition or cavity that may need a filling, we’ll develop a treatment plan straightaway.
