Oral Health Assessments
The practice is strongly committed to the philosophy of preventative dentistry. Our proactive approach will identify your risk of future dental problems e.g. gum disease and decay, and help prevent them in future before the need for dental treatment.
Each new patient undergoes a thorough Oral Health Assessment which consists of a comprehensive medical and social assessment and a detailed oral and radiographic examination. This allows us to measure your current level of oral health, identify those areas where you require treatment and establish all future monitoring needs.
We can then design your personal care plan enabling you to understand your role in achieving a high level of oral health. We aim to minimise the possible need for future invasive dental treatment. We will strive to keep you free of decay and gum disease, something which we are confident is achievable, and your dental health will be reviewed at regular six monthly intervals.
