Preventive check-up

Our doctors check the condition of teeth and periodontitis, mucous membranes, bones and other tissues during preventive check-ups. We detect anomalies in the position of teeth and jaws and focus on detecting changes in the oral cavity that can signal about another disease. We will also teach our patient the basics of proper oral and dental hygiene. We will explain and propose a treatment plan, including prices for different procedures that are not paid by insurance companies.

What is included in a dental check-up?

  • filling in an intake questionnaire.
  • X-ray, examination of the tissues of the oral cavity.

X-ray: Before the process of a preventive check-up, we make a large orthopantomogram (OPG) image, which can show even the initial stages of caries, the position and condition of wisdom teeth, roots, calculus below the gum level or the manifestation of periodontitis and other inflammations.

Examination: Our doctors examine the existence of caries and various pigments. They check the existing crowns, implants and the overall functional and aesthetic condition of your dental apparatus.
