Preventive Care for Adults

Regular Oral Health Assessments

When you attend Stafford Street Dental Care for your regular Oral Health Assessment we will check far more than just your teeth. We understand that good dental health and your general health are linked so we will start by updating your medical history and noting any changes.

 

We will then carry out a comprehensive check of your head and neck area which will include:

 

  • Check your jaw joints and the muscles around them to make sure everything is healthy
  • Look at the area under your jaw
  • Check your lips, cheeks, under the tongue, and roof of your mouth for cancer screening
  • Look at the overall condition of your teeth and how they bite and work together
  • Examine each tooth and any restoration that is in it already
  • Check the health of your gums
  • Take some X-ray pictures of the teeth if we have good reason to check the stability of any previous fillings, check for decay, the health and strength of teeth and their roots beneath the gum line and examine the bone height around the teeth
  • We take some photos of your mouth and teeth, which are a good record and great for us all to look at, especially you!
  • Next we will have a look at the photos and X-ray pictures together
  • We will discuss what we see
  • If there are any particular risks or problems we will discuss the causes
  • If there are any requirements for care we will make a plan together
  • We always try to look at the whole picture, so this may mean that we have to do some extra planning, perhaps involving other members of our team such as the specialist oral surgeon Nick Malden or implant dentist Willie Jack. We would then arrange a second appointment to discuss our thinking
  • Our number one aim is to get your teeth and gums into a healthy condition that you can look after for the rest of your life
  • We always set out to provide our care in the most minimally interventive way possible
