During an initial examination, which usually takes 45 minutes, we carry out a comprehensive check of your whole mouth. Our aim is to take a thorough and individualised approach taking into account your medical and dental history, while listening to your queries and concerns.
The examination process is aided by digital radiographs (X-rays) and an intra-oral camera.
At Totally Teeth we recommend having a check-up and clean done every 6 months to maintain healthy gums and a glowing smile. Having a regular examination will help diagnose and treat any concerns in the early stages.

Fissures are deep grooves on the biting surface of the teeth. This is an area which the bristles of your tooth brush cannot reach. A protective coating called a fissure sealant is applied to the tooth. It goes on like a nail polish which is then hardened by a curing light which sets it hard. Fissure seals are checked every 6 months when you have a check- up and clean appt.
