When your Dentist is ready , your Dental Assistant will call your name and lead you from the waiting room through to the dental surgery. The Dental Assistance will introduce themselves and ask if you have any specific concerns or issues with the teeth, gums or appearance of your smile.
The Dentist may request that digital dental x-rays be taken of your teeth and gums during your check-up. A dental x-ray is the only accurate way that the dentist can 'see' between the teeth and under fillings.
Types of x-rays you might need
Small Dental X-Ray – for individual teeth
3D Cone Beam X-Ray – shows the very fine detail of all structures of the jaw in the three-dimensional view
