Dental examination


At your first visit to Shepperton Dental Care you will receive a thorough examination and we will discuss treatment options thoroughly before we decide how best to maintain your oral health. Examinations include x-rays if necessary. Examinations also include a check of the soft tissue, including gums, cheeks, tongue and lips and includes a bite check and an oral cancer screening. Hygienist appointments are very important to maintain oral health as untreated gum disease can result in bone loss and eventually tooth loss. Gum disease starts with gingivitis, which is an infection of the gums causing redness, bleeding and swelling of the gum due to build up (plaque and tartar deposits). Gingivitis is very often due to poor oral hygiene, but correction of this problem can be enough to cure it. Many patients that come to Shepperton Dental Care for the first time do not even realize they have gum disease.
If untreated the condition progresses to perodontitis where the supporting bone around the teeth is lost. This will eventually lead to tooth loss with the possibility of getting an abscess, bad breath and resulting in poor cosmetics.
Shepperton Dental Care provides treatment of gingivitis and peridontitis through the dentist and hygienist, but in special cases we also provide referral to a specialist for advanced treatment.
At Shepperton Dental Care we do not want any of our patients to lose teeth and therefore we have a membership plan that includes hygienist and examination appointments every 6 months to maintain healthy gums.
Gum disease has also been associated with heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory disease.
SO keep brushing in the right places!
