Our aim is to provide long-term dentistry that is in the best interest of our patients, and we are not about short-term smile makeovers and quick fixes! Our goal is not only to restore and maintain the health of your teeth and gums to allow you to eat comfortably, but also to achieve a lasting healthy and attractive smile so that your dentistry enhances your quality of life!
Usually your first visit will be an initial consultation. At this visit we will discuss your concerns and carry out a brief examination of your mouth along with some preliminary X-rays to give us an idea of your dental condition. We will then talk about the treatment possibilities and our recommendations, and give you a rough idea of the fees involved.
If after your initial visit you decide to pursue things further with us, our patient coordinators will be happy to organize subsequent appointments.
The next step is usually a more detailed examination and evaluation in order to give a more precise idea of your dental treatment needs, possible options and fees involved. This entails a thorough full case assessment of your mouth.
At this appointment we will evaluate the health, condition and appearance of your teeth, gums and the general condition of the soft tissues in your mouth. We normally need to take further X-rays to check for any problems not readily visible in the mouth, along with clinical photographs and study moulds of your teeth.
If you suffer from periodontal disease (gum disease), we may also carry out and in-depth pocket analysis and further tests to help us treat you more effectively. There is increasing evidence that periodontal & oral disease is linked to systemic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes and that there may be an increased risk of contracting these diseases if your oral health is poor. Hence the importance of ensuring that any disease in your mouth is treated effectively and your oral health is well maintained to a very high standard.
Finally, it is our aim that whatever treatment we recommend will be in your best interest and we will always strive to achieve the best feasible result and carry out any dental work to the highest standards of precision and care.
We look forward to welcoming you to the practice and are always delighted to see new patients.
