Examinations, health and general dentistry

Our routine examinations do of course include:

  • an itemised examination and assessment at each recall…

It is about far more than just looking for fillings; we check all of the mouth and surrounding tissues for health, including an oral cancer screening as routine.

Mouth cancer can often be spotted in its early stages during a thorough mouth examination. Anyone can be affected by mouth cancer, whether they have their own teeth or not and many people with mouth cancer go to their dentist or doctor too late. If recognised early, then the chances of a cure are good.  Mouth cancers are more common in men over 40, but research has shown that mouth cancer is becoming more in common women and younger patients  .

Gum health, tooth health and the function of the whole mouth and jaws are all equally important.

What do you want from your dental health overall? Is anything specific of concern to you?

Our services include preventive advice, full and detailed hygienist services and the full care of dental implants. Our emphasis is very much on minimal intervention.

We are very proud to be general dentists and work very hard to keep up to date with the latest developments across a wide range of skills. The clinicians at our practice all have a fully up to date post-graduate training history and continue to expand their knowledge.

Treatments available include:

General

Advanced

Hygiene

Aesthetic treatments

 

Before starting any treatments we will discuss your treatment plan and make you aware of the full range of  options available. Where we cannot do any treatment in house, we have a choice of specialists to whom we refer. We will not refer to anybody who does not have a post-graduate qualification in their field of expertise.

 

 

We have a commitment to provide you with the best of care. This starts with our booking system of either cards,  phone call, text or email. We can tell you instantly whether an appointment is available without searching “through the book”.

Our patients come from next door and as far away as North Carolina, Dubai and Nigeria. Every patient is unique and we seek to tailor our skills to your needs. The old “drill & fill” mentality is very much a dim and distant memory.

Diagnosis is enhanced by the use of digital xrays and the best of equipment to reduce the dosage and to get the results straight away rather than having to come back later.

For advanced tooth restoration we use a computer again with a CAD CAM design system (CEREC) to deliver your new tooth to you at the same visit.

We also use digital photographs to record your mouth and to help us explain any issues with you. We can also use a whiteboard and marker pen for the really difficult stuff!
