Your initial consultation will primarily consist of a thorough examination of your mouth, including an assessment of both your ‘hard tissue’ (teeth, bone and joints) and your ‘soft tissue’ (gums, lips, tongue and lymph glands). If necessary, depending on your dental concerns and history, we may also take X-rays.
After this initial assessment, we will openly discuss the results with you, so that we can tailor a treatment plan to your specific needs and priorities.
At Penrith Dentists we make it our mission to demystify dentistry. Experience has shown us that when our patients are well informed about their oral health and the dental options available to them, they enjoy greater confidence throughout their treatment.
Here, to get the ball rolling, are the answers to some of the questions we are most frequently asked.
