As part of your six-monthly (or annual) checkup & review we provide a thorough and comprehensive examination of your mouth.
After discussing your medical history and your general health condition, your dentist will start with a check up of your soft tissues – the inside of the lips, the tongue, the palate, the inside of the cheeks, again checking for abnormal conditions.
After that a screening of your periodontal health is carried out (the state of your gums). Minor cases of gum disease may mean a recommendation to visit the hygienist for a full-mouth scale and polish and oral hygiene instruction. More severe cases are referred to our in-house Periodontist (gum-specialist).
Finally, as part of our dental service, your teeth are checked for decay & fractures. Small digital x-rays may be taken to gain a better view of ‘hidden’ areas of your mouth, for example, to detect whether any decay is occurring between or inside your teeth. X-rays also help to show the supporting bone level in your jaw, to detect signs of advanced periodontal disease or infections.
Regular professional cleaning combined with looking after your teeth and gums well at home will help keep your oral health in check, which means a fresh breath and healthy smile.

Missing teeth can be replaced with implants or bridgework. Great results can be achieved by combining the latest advanced materials and gum management techniques to make replacement teeth appear to emerge from the gum like a natural tooth.
Implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. The implant, which is made of titanium, is fitted in bone where the tooth root would normally be. When fully integrated to the bone, a post (or abutment) is attached to the implant and crown or bridge can be placed over the abutment to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
When the whole dentition is broken down, there is considerable tooth surface loss and/or multiple missing teeth, then a full mouth reconstruction may be required. This will normally require every tooth to be restored often with a combination of veneers, crowns, implants and/or bridgework.
