Examination Dental Treatment by a Dentist Near Me in London

What is an Examination?

A dental examination or “check-up” is our way of making sure your oral health is maintained for today, tomorrow and the future.

During this dental examination, we take the time to listen to your wants, needs and any other aspects of your dental care that you wish to discuss. We believe this open communication helps us understand our patients better than anyone else.

A comprehensive examination of the face, head and neck is performed including the jaw joints. This is followed by an oral health screen for gum disease, oral cancer and tooth decay which is accompanied by digital X-rays for diagnostic screening purposes. If any or problems or disease is identified, we take the time to discuss things in detail with you giving you all of the possible treatment options.

At Ruh Dental, our focus is on prevention and how we can prevent oral disease from occurring. We aim to achieve this through advice, education and building relationships to ensure that your dental health is maintained in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

We would always recommend at least 6 monthly for routine examinations to ensure that a thorough examination is completed and to screen for any disease.

You will be seen by one of our highly skilled dentists who will introduce themselves, get to know you and your needs, wants and expectations. It will be a chance for you to discuss any concerns that you may have and for those to be addressed. The dentist will then perform a full examination as outlined as above and provide you with a course of treatment as is required depending on the findings whilst considering your thoughts, wants and needs.

Tooth decay is a disease process which is very common. It occurs through the process of dietary sugar consumption which is used as an energy source by the bacteria that live in the mouth. As a waste product, bacteria produce acid which breaks down the tooth structure and is what causes the tooth decay.

By reducing the amount and more importantly the regularity of how often you consume sugar / and sugary foods, it reduces the energy source available for the bacteria and in turn the acid that they produce to cause the decay in the first place

Brushing with a Fluoride based toothpaste twice a day. Flouride incorporates itself into the microstructure of the tooth which makes it more resistant to decay. Furthermore the bacteria that live in the mouth are not fond of it and make its difficult for them to exist.

Gum disease is very common and equally very treatable. It occurs because of the build up of plaque on the tooth surface which contains vast amount of bacteria which can irritate and damage them. If teeth are not cleaned regularly the bacteria can cause the gums to become inflammed, bleed and become painful. These are all signs of gum disease and must be treated immediately. If left and allowed to progress, it can result in more severe symptoms such as recession of gums, sensitivity and mobility of teeth.

Brushing twice a day on the tooth surface and gum margins which will remove the plaque and the cause of the irritation to the gums and gum disease.

Using inter-dental cleaning aids, a large portion of teeth if not flossed are left uncleaned, so it is important to use floss of interdental brushes to remove any plaque and debris.

Attending regularly to see the hygienist. The hygienist will ensure that the the health of the gums are checked, cleaned and also provide advice on how best to improve any oral hygiene regimes.

Avoiding smoking. Smoking can release many potent chemicals into the mouth and this in turn can result in gum disease, as there is a large scientific basis suggesting the two are linked
