Dental examinations at Melbourne Dental Wellbeing include examining your teeth, gums, and jaw joint, screening for oral cancer, and discussing brushing and flossing habits. Other relevant aspects of your lifestyle and overall health will be discussed. Dr. McBratney-Owen will also want to hear about any dental concerns you would like addressed in your treatment. These components of an exam form the foundation of good preventive care. Recall examinations are tailored to each individual patient and can be every 6 to 12 months depending on the health of your mouth.
