Cherrybank Consultation: What to Expect
Our consultations are comprehensive check-ups to give you total peace of mind and solve any existing dental problems. This involves:
Full mouth examination
We check your mouth for signs of tooth decay and dental disease. As well as examining your teeth, we also look at your gums, tongue, lips and cheeks.
Jaw joints and bite examination
Jaw disorders are often caused by tooth grinding and can lead to muscle tension, facial pain and headaches. Our screening process includes a check of your joints to see how your teeth bite together. If necessary, we can carry out further analysis using computerised sensors.
Digital Smile Design (DSD) and video analysis
Digital Smile Design is an innovative dental treatment that allows you to preview your perfect smile before any treatment has taken place. This process involves taking digital photographs of your teeth and may also include a short recording of you in conversation to see how your teeth look during natural speech.
Impressions and X-rays
We’ll take X-rays of your mouth to check the bone levels around your teeth. This way, we can look for signs of disease or decay not visible on the surface and examine wisdom teeth. We might also take simple impressions of your teeth for our records.
Gum health & Oral cancer screening
Gum and oral cancer screenings are vital as both can be present without displaying notable symptoms.
Our gum health screenings check how healthy your gums are and help us spot early signs of gum disease to put preventative measures in place.
Oral Cancer screenings are conducted annually and include a visual check of your whole mouth. We use a Velscope – a camera that highlights any oral mucosal abnormalities – to look at the surface layers of skin to determine any changes.
Blood pressure check
We offer blood pressure checks as a courtesy, as you might visit us more than you see your GP. If we do notice high blood pressure, we recommend that you visit your doctor. We appreciate that you might feel nervous about your visit, which may raise your blood pressure.
Dental camera – see what we see
Using small digital cameras, we can take a closer look at the edges of fillings etc., in your mouth. These images help you understand your dental structure and where you might benefit from different treatment options.
Medical history review
Good dental health means it’s essential we understand your complete medical history and any medications you’re taking. You can rest assured that your details are held in the strictest confidence.
