Looking for a new dental surgery? Want to get something more out of your dental check-ups?
Look no further!
In the not so distant past, many patients attended dental surgeries to have their biannual check up and maybe a scale and polish. Today, dental patients are seeking more cosmetic options, as well as family friendly practices and so, if you want oral implants or child dentistry, look no further than Coptfold Dental Practice!
When you come to Coptfold Dental Practice, our dentist in Coptfold can offer you and your family a myriad of treatments! Want your teeth whitened? We can help! Want oral implants to fill that gap? We can help! Need sedation due to nerves? We can help with that too!
Of course, when you join our surgery, our dentist in Coptfold will conduct an initial assessment of your teeth and oral health at your first consultation, along with some other bits and pieces.
Read on to find out what your initial consultation will involve.
At Coptfold Dental Practice, we aim to make all of our patients as comfortable as possible.
During your initial assessment with us, our dentist in Coptfold will aim to build a relationship with you, enabling you to discuss your needs and worries about any upcoming dental work.
This is also the perfect time to discuss whether you are either a nervous or phobic patient, so our team can tailor future treatments and appointments to ease your anxieties.
During your initial consultation, our team will perform a thorough examination of your mouth; your teeth and gums will be examined for any signs of disease or decay, and our team will also examine the strength of your dental enamel.
Of course, one of the key things we will want to establish is the presence of any issues beneath the gum line. This is where the X-rays come in!
Taking an image of your upper and lower jaw allows our team to conduct a more in depth analysis of the jaw and also enables them to see any minor cracks in fillings or crowns. This is also useful for seeing problems like impacted wisdom teeth too.
Oral cancer screening
In the UK, oral cancer is on the rise. Luckily, survival rates are too, thanks to early detection by dental teams.
When examining your mouth, our team will assess your gums and inner cheeks for any indicators of oral cancer; if concerned, we will send you to a specialist for a more complete assessment and, if necessary, treatment.
Don’t worry! Oral cancer has an extremely high success rate of recovery with treatment, so there is nothing to be concerned about.
And finally, if you have a history of gum disease, poor oral hygiene, or have a condition like diabetes, then our team will devise a targeted plan to keep your oral hygiene in check.
This may include dietary advice, specialised toothpastes, mouthwashes, advice on correct brushing techniques and may include a visit to our on-site hygienist.
