This includes the following:

  • Listening to your concerns
  • Medical history review (Please bring the names and doses of any medications you are taking)
  • Extra-oral examination including lymph nodes and temporomandibular joints
  • Oral cancer screen
  • Soft tissue and gum evaluation
  • Examination of teeth, existing restorations and prostheses including dentures

 

Radiographs (x-rays) maybe taken if required. The digital radiography system installed in the practice (Schick- Sirona Company) ensures that the radiation dose you receive is reduced by up to 80% in comparison with traditional x-ray films. The image appears immediately after exposure without the need to wait for film development time for a quicker diagnosis.
