Your initial appointment

Your initial appointment at iteeth implant dental will consist of a Digital Photograph and a thorough Dental Examination to assess the current state of your oral health.

What to Expect – New Patient Examination

A complete medical history will be taken, so please bring along a list of your current medications and let us know of any health conditions. Many common chronic medical conditions and medications may affect your oral health and future dental treatment. A Digital Photograph will be taken for our records

Digital Radiographs may be taken to check for tooth decay & periodontal disease.

A thorough check of your dentition including the current health of your gums will be performed. Broken down or corroding fillings will be identified as will any decay that may present around your teeth.  We will also look at your teeth for signs of acid wear, tooth brush abrasion, tooth grinding and clenching.

In addition we will examine your jaw joint and muscles, and will also examine your tongue, cheeks and other structures to check for signs of disease or oral cancer.

An orthodontic assessment will be performed to assess your bite and straightness of your teeth. In children we can assess the likelihood of future problems with tooth crowding and arrange for early interceptive orthodontic treatment to correct for future problems.

In complex cases we may take moulds of your teeth and utilize OPG X-Ray tests to further examine your dental health.

Each patient will receive a tailored treatment plan to restore or maintain their oral health. This plan will include a preventative focus to maintain your oral health in the long term. Where dental treatment is required we will provide you with all the available treatment options. This will enable you to achieve your desired optimal oral healthcare outcome.
