Information About our General Dentistry Services – Melbourne Dental Clinic
Vogue Smiles Melbourne practices general dentistry. General Dentistry is the area of dentistry you are most likely to be familiar with. If you have undergone a scale and polish, a filling or have had dentures fitted then this all falls into the category of general dentistry. A general dentist is someone who is concerned with the care and maintenance of your teeth. He or she will place on emphasis on preventative care as well as undertaking restorative treatments. This preventative approach includes check ups every 6 months and dental cleaning.
Our dentists perform thorough examinations on your jaw, muscles, soft tissues, gums and your teeth. This includes assessments for potential temporomandibular joint disorders as well as oral cancer screening. Rest assured we will always inform you of any areas of concern and discuss what options are available to you.
Dental X-rays are an essential tool to us as dentists. They aid us in assessing and diagnosing dental diseases that may not be readily apparent or visible to the naked eye. With more information, we able to discuss appropriate options & potential outcomes with you in detail.
