The initial consultation involves a dental examinantion and a Mouth cancer screening
What does the dental examination involve?
A dental examination shows how healthy your mouth is. After the examination, we can discuss the results and plan the best way to deal with any problems.
What will we do?
As well as looking in your mouth, we will ask you some questions
These may include the following:
Why you’ve come for an examination.
Any problems you may have noticed such as sensitivity or pain.
Your general health and any medicines you might be taking (because these can effect you dental care).
Your diet (because sugary snacks and drinks can cause tooth decay, and because a balanced diet is important to your general health and resistance to disease).
How you clean your teeth (because correct cleaning helps prevent health decay and gum disease).
Tabacco and alcohol use (because both can harm your mouth as well as your general health).
You should expect us to:
Look at your face and neck to see that they are healthy.
Feel under your jaw
Look inside your mouth, at you tongue, your cheeks and lips, the roof of your mouth and the back of your throat (places where there might be a problem the you can’t see or feel).
