Altona Gate Dental - Every smile is precious
Altona Gate Dental customized treatment plan

Your initial visit to Altona Gate Dental forms a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we obtain important information about you, your medical and dental history and it allows you time to get to know your doctor. We will listen carefully to your concerns and desires as understanding these are an important factor in your result.

During this visit we will perform a thorough examination of your gums, teeth and mouth. We will look for signs of disease of the gums, cavities of the teeth and other dental problems.

We will perform a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums, gently scraping below the gum line, removing the build up of plaque and tartar. Plaque can cause gum infections and disease, bad breath, cavities and other problems.

A detailed set of digital x-rays may also be taken.
Digital x-rays have a very high resolution and provide a clear picture of your current oral health. We use x-ray machines that emit virtually no radiation – no more than you would obtain from a day outside in the sun or watching TV over the weekend.

We also use an intra-oral camera. This mini video camera displays your mouth and teeth on a TV monitor and allows us to explain any concerns and discuss with you the various treatment solutions available, so you can see, understand and make informed decisions regarding your dental health. Our goal is to help you maintain your good oral health for a lifetime and to prevent problems from becoming serious, by identifying and treating them as soon as possible.

At the completion of this visit, we will demonstrate and discuss the most effective way to brush and floss your teeth at home.We are very passionate about educating our patients on simple, easy to follow but beneficial oral hygiene procedures.

We will listen carefully to your concerns and desires as understanding these are an important factor in your result.
