Now that’s something to Smile About !
Our Full Process
We will then undertake a comprehensive examination of your face, mouth and jaws, including the soft tissues inside and outside of your mouth. Your smile, teeth, gums and bite will be carefully examined and two posterior bite-wing x-rays will be taken.
We use state of the art technology including intra-oral cameras and caries (decay detecting) fluorescent cameras to help us diagnose any problems.
In more complex cases, we may need to gather more information to give a more complete picture. This may include further x-rays of individual teeth, a full ‘jaw scan’ OPG x-ray, study models and clinical photos. In these cases, a complimentary second visit may be required before we can present you with your treatment plan.
Professional Solutions & Advice
At the end of your visit we will go over all treatment options with you, prioritize them in order of urgency and discuss all fees involved with each stage of your treatment. Any questions you may have will be answered. Our aim is to be totally transparent about our treatment recommendations, any alternative treatment options available, the steps involved, and their associated costs.
