Dental Examinations

Oral Health Checks

Having an oral health check is the first step in achieving optimum dental health. Prior to any treatment being undertaken, it’s important to extensively assess the current situation with regards to a patient’s oral health. This includes checks on not only the teeth, but also the jaw, bite, gums and soft tissue in the mouth.

Gum Health & Oral Cancer Checks

Gum health checks and oral cancer screenings are extremely important, as both can be present without displaying notable or visible symptoms. Our gum health checks are useful for identifying early signs of gum disease, meaning we can put measures in place and treat it before it worsens.

Oral cancer screenings are done annually, including a visual examination of the patient’s whole mouth. Using a specially designed camera, any oral mucosal abnormalities can be spotted, looking at the surface layers of the skin to determine any changes to a normal, healthy mouth.

X-Rays & Impressions

To check bone mass around the teeth, as well as identifying signs of decay or disease, we take x-rays of our patients’ mouths. They’re also useful for examining wisdom teeth, which can sometimes cause pain, discomfort or dental problems for patient’s in the future. In some cases, we might take simple impressions of teeth to refer to and for our records.

Reassuring Nervous Patients

We completely understand that there are many patients who experience dental phobias or anxieties when visiting the dentist for treatment, but here at Quality Dental Care, we have a great deal of experience in managing patients that may be anxious about seeing a dentist. If you have any reservations or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team. 

What Next?

With new patients, a consultation with one of our dentists is necessary to carry out a full oral health examination. It’s highly recommended to have a dental exam once a year and our practice membership plan covers the cost of this, alongside dental hygiene appointments, discounted treatment fees and more.
