The starting point to the finest dental care at Essential Dental is a comprehensive and thorough examination. Essential Dental offer a complete detailed examination for all our patients to enable them to make informed decisions.
This involves more than just looking at the teeth. We examine all the hard and soft tissues of the head and neck, the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and perform an oral cancer check routinely. We utilise the most modern and up-to-date equipment to help us accomplish this thorough examination.
A comprehensive examination establishes a baseline of where you are with your oral health. If there is a progression of disease, we can monitor it and minimise or avoid major problems occurring. We can present you with a dental health plan to meet your immediate and future needs, making sure you are fully aware of all the options available to you. We will support any option you choose as long as you are fully aware of the likely outcome of that choice.
Dental disease can be totally painless; it usually is only when it has reached an advanced stage that you notice there is something wrong. Just because you don’t feel pain, does not mean you are dentally healthy. A comprehensive examination will establish accurately, allowing you to repair problems sooner rather than later, as opposed to being too late.
At Essential Dental we believe that regular dental care works out far cheaper and easier in the long run. It is far healthier and cheaper overtime to maintain your teeth and gums and prevent the causes of tooth loss than it is to neglect your teeth and suffer pain and eventually undergo costly repairs down the road to restore your dental health.
