Regular dental exams are an important part of preventive health care.
During a dental exam, the dentist will and check for cavities and gum disease. A dental exam might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.
During a dental exam, the dentist will likely discuss your diet and oral hygiene habits and might demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. Other topics for discussion might include lifestyle factors that can affect oral health and possible cosmetic improvements to your teeth.
Without healthy gums, there are risks of tooth mobility/loss, bad breath, soreness and bleeding and poor appearance. Sometimes gum disease can spread to the bone in the jaws, which anchors and holds teeth in position.
We can advise you on the best methods to look after your gums, as well as providing you with the most suitable treatments: these will range from a simple scale and polish, to thorough cleaning of periodontal pockets (below the gum-line).
Untreated tooth decay can lead to pain, loss of function and swelling/infection.
As well as delivering tailored advice on how to minimise future problems and reduce your risk of developing tooth decay in the future, we will offer potential solutions. There are various methods of treating tooth decay, and depending on the circumstances, we will endeavour to provide you with all the options- some which may include Composite-Resin restorations and crowns.
Suffering from pain or struggling with discomfort?
There are various causes of pain and soreness from your mouth and jaws. Importantly, we will do our utmost to diagnosis your complaint when you attend. We make it our goal to try and resolve any pain or discomfort with our expert advice, management and treatments- that may involve root-canal treatment, dental extractions and the application of other medications.
Do you dislike the gaps between your teeth? There are many options to treat unwanted and unsightly gaps.
Depending on your circumstances, the findings from the examination, we can make you aware of the prospective available treatments that will suit you best. Some of the common treatments we offer are the construction of dentures.
Or are you looking to improve the appearance? The subjective opinion of your aesthetic complaint is of absolute paramount importance to us. Whether it is the alignment (how "straight"/"crooked" your teeth are), colour or shape of your teeth, our team will listen, and promote the best solution(s) to address your worries. To view images of some of the treatment and procedures we provide that can improve or enhance your dental appearance, please see our gallery page.
