Preventive Dentistry

Initial Appointment

What to Expect

Your initial appointment at Smile Craft Dental will consist of a thorough dental examination to assess the current state of your oral health.

Medical History

A complete medical history will be taken, so please bring a list of your current medications and let us know of any health conditions. Our dentist needs to be aware of your general health condition as this can affect the condition of your teeth and gums and may effect medications given or treatment planned for you.

Optional X-rays

Digital full mouth or bitewing radiographs may be taken to check for tooth decay, periodontal disease, abscesses on the roots of your teeth. Dental x-rays are important as they show our dentists areas of your mouth that are hidden from view.

Dental Assessment

At your consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss any dental concerns you may have or how you would like your teeth improved.
A complete oral assessment will be done to help accurately plan which treatments would be best for you. During this examination we will assess your

  • Teeth restorations (filling, crowns, veneers, etc)
  • How you bite and the health of your jaw joints
  • Your smile and facial aesthetics
  • The health of your gums
  • Your tongue, throat, cheeks & lips for signs of oral cancer

Personalised Treatment Plan

Afterwards you will receive a tailored treatment plan to restore or maintain your oral health. This plan will include a preventative focus to maintain your oral health in the long term.

Where dental treatment is required, we will provide you with all the available treatment options. This will enable you to achieve the optimal outcome for your teeth. Occasionally, patients are referred to other dentists who specialise in the relevant fields of dentistry.
