Whether you are visiting CLDC for your regular examination or your first visit, we will perform a comprehensive dental examination.
Your examination will involve:
Facial Analysis: Symmetry, smile line, aesthetic appearance and posture
Soft Issues: Cheeks, palate, throat, tongue, floor of the mouth and lips
Assessment for any signs of pathology: tumours, cysts and oral cancer
Assessment of the chewing joint (TMJ) and associated muscles: disorders of this joint and the surrounding muscles can often lead to debilitating headaches, earaches, tooth wear and bite collapse
Periodontal (gum) assessment: gums form a supporting system for our teeth. Undiagnosed gum disease is the most common cause for tooth loss in the adult population
Hard tissue – teeth: Integrity of teeth, existing restorations, vitality, cracks, position in the mouth etc
Smile analysis – if requested: How happy you are with your smile, does your smile match your face, does your smile age you, is your smile aesthetically pleasing.
Following the examination, based on your desires and goals, a personalised treatment plan will be designed to suit your specific needs. All the available treatment options will be discussed with you, so that you can make a fully informed decision. If need be, a financial plan can be provided.
Our aim is to fit your care into your lifestyle as smoothly and as comfortably as possible.
