We ask you about your medical history and general state of health so that we can provide the safest, most appropriate treatments for you.
We regularly examine you for early signs of mouth cancer and other serious conditions of the mouth. Mouth cancer is a rare but increasing problem in the UK and early detection can save both your life and the quality of your life.
We carry out thorough dental examinations to identify small problems before they become big ones. This reduces your risk of dental emergencies and leads to simple treatments.
We examine your gums because gum disease is a major cause of tooth loss in this country. but can largely be prevented. Gum disease has been suggested to be implicated in a number of conditions like heart disease and diabetes, so its control is of great importance.
