Examinations are essential in determining appropriate treatment for the mouth and person. We don’t just look at the mouth, but take account of the whole person. Many medical conditions can be detected in the mouth and many conditions affect the mouth.
It is important that we take a comprehensive look at any medications and current conditions so that we do not progress to a treatment plan inappropriate to your health.
In the mouth, we will check your fillings, teeth, gums and soft tissues of the oral cavity and throat. Outside the mouth, we will check the tissues of the head and neck. We will enquire about habits such as drinking and smoking as these have a huge implication on your health.
At the end of your examination, we will summarise our findings and agree together whether any treatment is necessary. We will offer advice in prevention of disease that supports your health.
