Dental check-up

The routine dental check -up is the corner stone of our preventative philosophy.  A thorough and detailed routine dental examination is essential for the maintenance of good dental health.  At every routine dental examination we:-

- check the health of each individual tooth

- assess the health of the gums and chart the gum health index (BPE score)

- assess the oral hygiene

- examination of the jaw joints

- examination of the muscles of the jaws

- check the soft tissues of the face

- examination of the lymph nodes

- examination of the salivary glands

- examination of the tongue

- examination of the linings of the mouth

- an oral cancer assessment and risk analysis

- risk analysis for dental decay

- risk analysis for gum disease

- assess whether x-rays are required
