Book Your Dental Check-Up

Comprehensive Oral Exams

Oral exams allow your dentist to assess your oral and overall health, diagnose issues, and develop a treatment plan that is personalised to your needs. Your first dental exam may include various diagnostic techniques and is often accompanied by a medical questionnaire to establish your overall medical and dental history.

Dental Hygiene and Teeth Cleanings

Practising good oral hygiene at home is essential for preventing oral disease. However, dental care typically also includes regularly scheduled cleanings from a dentist and/or professional dental hygienist to support your oral health between appointments. During a dental hygiene appointment, your teeth will be cleaned and flossed, and you may also receive additional treatments such as fluoride treatments.

Oral Cancer Screening

Initial screening for oral cancer is typically completed in a regularly scheduled dental exam. Your dentist will look for irregularities in the tissues of your mouth and may also check the surrounding areas of the face, including the neck, cheeks, and jaw. Early diagnosis of oral cancers can lead to more effective treatment outcomes.

Root Canals

Decaying or cracked teeth are often treated with a root canal procedure. The infected tissue is cleaned out from the inside of the tooth and the remaining spaces are filled and sealed. The natural tooth is saved so that the alignment of the teeth can be preserved.

Dental Sealants

Dentists use sealants to protect teeth from damage or decay caused by bacteria. They are applied to the surface of the teeth. Tooth decay can cause a variety of other issues, which is why dental sealants are an important preventative oral health measure.

Tooth Extractions

Teeth may need to be removed for a variety of reasons. Damaged teeth can be removed to prevent further issues in the mouth, or you may need to have teeth removed in preparation for other treatments. Wisdom teeth extractions are also necessary for some people to prevent overcrowding the mouth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth may become discoloured due to a range of factors, including staining from coffee, tea, wine, and berries, or from smoking or taking certain medications. Our dentists have a range of teeth whitening products and services available, including in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments.

Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays of different types are often performed in a regularly scheduled appointment. X-rays help dentists look at areas of the teeth, gums, and jaw that are not immediately visible. In many cases, they also allow your dentist to monitor small issues or abnormalities, which can then be managed through a treatment plan and monitored using follow-up X-rays.

Beyond General Dentistry

Our general dentists are skilled in a variety of other dental procedures such as cosmetic dentistry, and fitting oral appliances such as aligners, mouthguards, and sleep apnea devices. If you require specialised dental procedures we may refer you to other dental professionals.


Having a regular check-up and clean at our dental practice makes your teeth healthy and free from any condition like gingivitis, periodontitis, caries, stains, plaque, and tartar build-up. Catching any issues at early stages saves a lot of money on costly dental treatments.

Regular general dentistry checkups are essential for maintaining good oral health. During your dental exam, your dentist will use magnification to thoroughly examine your teeth for any signs of decay, abrasion, or filling leakage. Left untreated, these issues can lead to further damage, including tooth loss.
We are going to access the gums to make sure the gums are in healthy condition. Maintaining healthy gums is key to preserving teeth and overall oral health. During a gum assessment, we check for deep pockets, bleeding, tartar, and gumminess to ensure your gums are in good condition.

We also check your teeth and gums for ulcers, or dryness, and perform an oral cancer screening if discolouration is present.

Dental X-rays are very helpful to understand the anatomy of the teeth and to check if there are any signs of infection near the roots or in between the teeth. At Oral Square Dental Care we use digital radiography to minimise exposure to our patients, their safety is our priority.

You should make an appointment for a dental check-up and clean to get rid of any plaque and tartar whilst also making sure that your teeth are healthy.

Treating decayed teeth early is crucial to avoid more invasive and expensive procedures like root canals or extractions. When we identify decay, we remove it from the teeth and fill any holes or gaps with fillings.

Dental cleanings and check-ups are ideal because they keep your teeth in the best condition while preventing some serious dental problems from occurring.


Keep your teeth healthy and clean by brushing, using floss, rinsing with mouthwash, and schedule routine appointments with your dentist to have your teeth cleaned and examined.
