Here at Absolute Dental, Manchester we fundamentally believe in prevention and recommend our patients to have dental examinations every 6-12 months depending on their oral hygiene. These examinations are crucial in the early detection and treatment of all sorts of oral and dental problems. They provide us with an excellent opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your teeth.
Studies show that mouth cancer is on the increase and that early detection dramatically improves the chances of recovery. This is why we carry out oral cancer screening at every examination.
At your examination appointment, your dentist will carry out a full oral examination, which includes:
*A review of your medical and dental history
*The taking of x-rays and intraoral photos
*Screening for oral cancers
*A periodontal health evaluation (check your gums)
*An examination of your teeth and soft tissues
*An assessment of your jaw muscle function.
At the end of your examination, should the dentist have made any recommendations, you will be provided with a detailed treatment plan with any costs associated.
