Why Have Regular Comprehensive Dental Examinations?
The Dental Group encourages all of our patients to practice preventive dentistry and regular examinations are vital for optimal dental health. Your comprehensive examination is a carefully structured process that will help you gain control of and understand how to maintain a high level of oral health.
What Should I Expect During a Comprehensive Examination?
Your examination is a chance for us to talk with you about your dental health so we can discover your aims, as well as any concerns you may have. We will evaluate your oral health at every comprehensive examination so we can assess the situation fully and identify any changes. Your teeth, gums, jaws and oral tissues will all be meticulously but gently examined.
Comprehensive dental examinations include regular screenings for oral cancer as this can affect the inside of your mouth, your tongue and lips. Oral cancer is becoming increasingly common but a prompt diagnosis greatly improves the prognosis. A comprehensive examination will never be uncomfortable and is minimally invasive.
What to Expect Should You Require any Treatment
If you do require any treatment then we will explain all the options available. We can discuss the positives and negatives of each possible procedure and you will be provided with a written treatment plan. This details our findings, proposed treatments and the associated fees. Our aim is to ensure every patient is fully informed and able to make the most suitable decision for their oral health requirements.
How Often Should I Have a Comprehensive Examination?
We like to see our patients every twelve months, although some people with more complex needs may benefit from more frequent visits. A comprehensive examination is the most effective method for facilitating the maintenance of good dental health. You can rest assured that The Dental Group will only ever recommend and provide the highest quality clinical services using the best and most appropriate techniques and materials.
