A full oral health examination, including oral cancer screening
Thorough examination of the gums, teeth and associated structures is essential to make sure everything is in good working order. Some of the things we check are:
- Gums and bone
- Chewing muscles
- Oral cancer
- The jaw joint
- Your airway
- Sleep apnoea and snoring
- Clenching and grinding
Detailed photographs and low dose digital x-rays are used to aid in diagnoses and record keeping. If any treatment is recommended, we will discuss the options available to you to with the aid of photographs to help give you a full understanding of the situation and need.
The oral health and oral cancer checks will be part of your regular check ups. They help us quickly pick up any signs of disease so they can be dealt with early, at lower cost and less discomfort to you.
