27 Oct


Your regular dental examination will consists of several parts such as:

  • A complete medical history
  • Face and neck for skin discoloration, moles, sores
  • Bite for problems in how the teeth come together
  • Jaw for signs of clicking and popping in the temporomandibular joint
  • Lymph nodes and salivary glands for swelling or lumps
  • Inner cheeks for infections, ulcers, injuries
  • Interior surfaces — tongue, floor of the mouth, soft and hard palates, gum tissue for signs of infection or oral cancer
  • Teeth for decay, cracks, and condition of fillings
  • Examination of the teeth and gums. As well as a visual examination this will include:
    1. X-rays: we use digital radiography equipment with a much smaller radiation dose than standard equipment. X-rays are a vital part of any dental examination allowing us to diagnose problems under the surface of the teeth, between the teeth or in the roots
    2. Intra-oral camera: a small hand-held camera can take close-up pictures of your teeth and project them onto the screen in front of you – you will be able to see exactly what your dentist sees.
  • Dietary advice
  • Discussion of oral cancer risk factors including smoking and alcohol
