Consultations and Examinations

Consultations usually only take a few minutes and involve chatting to the dentist about any problems you might have. You might want a consultation if you need to make a decision about what type of further treatment to have.

An examination may have to take place if the dentist needs to see your teeth. It may be done as part of a consultation or simply as part of a yearly or 6 monthly check-up, and usually involves a thorough check on each tooth, your gums and the rest of your mouth.
