first-visit

Welcome To Our Professional And Friendly Dental Clinic In Carina, Brisbane…

We understand how important it is to choose the right dentist. To help put your mind at ease, we have devised a small summary of what you can expect during your first visit with us. We hope this assists in alleviating any concerns or worries you might have, prior to your first consultation.

What should I expect from my first visit?

We would like to get to know you better.

Before we commence with any dental work, it’s important to fill in a questionnaire about your medical and dental history. This helps us determine the best course of action for you.

Should you require emergency treatment, this is a priority and will most certainly be attended to first.

We will perform a comprehensive intra-oral and extra-oral examination, which includes:

  • The tongue, lips, cheeks and throat for any redness; as well as swelling or any signs of oral cancer
  • Teeth
  • Previous dental work, such as: crown or veneer
  • Gums and surrounding structure
  • Bite jaw joint evaluation

We take X-rays to determine the:

  • Extent of decay inside and in between the teeth.
  • Root shape and position.
  • Bone level in between the teeth
  • Site of infection or cysts in the roots of the tooth

After your complete examination, we will complete a customised plan, with various treatment options, including: the benefits and drawbacks with each one – from the most important to the least important issues. This gives you the flexibility to choose what you would like to implement first before progressing to other concerns that might be present. With your permission and consent, we will then implement a personalised plan that suits your individual lifestyle and budget.

We will endeavour to finish each appointment with a professional scale and clean; polish and topical fluoride applications. This is all performed in a relaxing, calm and comfortable environment.

Should you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to Gap Free Smile on (07) 3157 6589. We look forward to hearing from you.
