Consultations and Examinations
What to expect from my check up or consultation appointment:
At your check up appointment we will provide a thorough examination, It’s not just the teeth that we are looking at , we also check the health of your gums for signs of gum disease ( the leading cause of tooth loss) and as part of your oral cancer screening we will examine the soft tissues in your mouth at every examination . At your examination appointment we will also provide preventative care , oral hygiene advice and take dental x-rays as and when required.
For us to be able to advise the most effective and comprehensive check up it would be really helpful if you could advise us for any medication you are taking, this will help us give you the most suitable advice for you and unable us to establish any risk factors.
If following your examination there is treatment required we will discuss and explain this to you in the privacy of the surgery but our treatment co-ordinator Jess will always be on hand to discuss the options if you would like to sit down in our private consultation room away from the surgery chat over the options and discuss payment options away from the reception area.
