Dentality @ Hoddesdon - Oral health Assessment and Cancer Screening

At Dentality we understand that your oral health can have a marked effect on your general health and well-being. We take time to listen to your concerns, understand what you would like to have done and work with you and the rest of our team to formulate individually tailored solutions to your dental needs, based on your priorities, the options available and your budget. The result is quality dentistry at a price that you can afford.

As part of your oral health assessment we will:

  • Ask about your general health, medical and drug history
  • Assess your diet, oral hygiene regime, social and dental history
  • Examine your head and neck region
  • Assess your general oral health, existing restorations with appropriate radiographs (x-rays)
  • Assess your mouth for tooth decay, gum disease and periodontal disease
  • Undertake a basic periodontal (gum) examination
  • Carry out a visual check of your tongue, cheeks and other soft tissues, looking in particular for signs of oral cancer: oral cancer is rare but we always take the opportunity to check for early signs
  • Guide you through any problems we may find, discuss the cause(s) of these problems¬† and the options available to remedy these problems in order to stabilise and maintain your oral health
  • Use state of the art technology to illustrate our findings and help ensure you understand the findings and the treatment options given including the risks and benefits of each
  • Provide you with a treatment plan which will detail all the costs associated with the treatment you have chosen to go ahead with
  • Book you in at a mutually convenient time for your future appointments
