At O’Halloran Hill Dental Clinic we pride ourselves on offering the most comprehensive dental examinations.
Our patients come from all over the Southern Suburbs of Adelaide.
What’s involved in your dental examinations
We take the time to assess your dental health and how you feel about your smile. We try to understand the changes that have occurred in the past few years and how best to prevent any pain or breakdown in the years to come.
An important part of the check-up involves taking necessary dental x-rays to find out what is happening with your teeth, what may be under old fillings.
We will also provide you with photos so you can see your teeth and take part in planning for the future of your dental health. By seeing your photos and understanding your mouth better we can help you improve your Dental Hygiene.
Dental checkup & dental education
It is most important that you understand your mouth so you feel confident with your dental health.
By understanding and being educated on how and why things occur, this will help minimize future problems.

Dental x-rays are an essential preventative diagnostic tool that provides valuable information on your teeth.
This information is not visible during a regular dental exam using the eyes.
We use this information to accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete a comprehensive treatment plan.
Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
Identifying and treating dental problems at early stages can save you time, money, unnecessary discomfort, and your teeth!
Are dental x-rays safe?
We are all exposed to natural radiation in our environment. The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.
Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are considered safe. We will only take the necessary x-rays. All precautions are taken to limit the patient’s exposure to radiation when taking them. By using digital x-rays and only taking them when necessary, we limit the patients exposure to radiation.
How often should dental x-rays be taken?
The need for dental x-rays depends on each patient’s individual dental health. Your dentist will recommend x-rays when you are a new patient or when it is your recall check up visit, if they haven’t been taken recently. These are generally updated every 2 years.
