New patient consultations & treatment
Discuss your dental hygiene treatment routine
A full mouth examination of your teeth and gums for signs of disease. This thorough periodontal (gum) assessment will include measurement of any gum recession, bleeding, gum pocketing and tooth mobility, thus assessing the severity of any disease. We will also measure how much plaque and tartar you have on your teeth and under the gums.
Plaque and tartar deposits will be carefully removed, as well as stains, using our Piezon ‘no pain’ ultrasonic scaler, followed by a gentle hand scale. Scaling is a procedure that meticulously removes contamination, toxins, micro-organisms, plaque, tartar and calculus that has permeated around and below the gum-line in order to obtain a healthy response. Then we will polish all your teeth leaving them silky smooth and clean.
We will discuss your gum condition and advise you on the best course of treatment needed, educate you on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums and advise when you should return for a maintenance visit in order to maintain optimal oral health.
We will ask if you’ve been having any issues like teeth grinding, headaches or TMJ. Of course we’ll also be checking your teeth to make sure there are no obvious cavities, or tooth decay that could lead to a cavity, and advise X-rays if necessary.
And of course if any other dental treatment is required, we will refer you to the best specialists in London.
