Dental check-ups Abbey Road St John's Wood
Diana has a calm and sympathetic approach to patients and examinations. The first appointment will include a full set of x rays and intra-oral photographs. Plus a full assessment of the teeth and gums, oral cancer screening and a medical and dental history review. You will also be provided with a written plan of any required treatment and associated cost after extensive discussion and examination of all available options
A very high percentage of the adult population, approx 97%, suffer with some level of gum disease. Gum disease is the major cause of tooth loss in adult patients. Your gums are the foundations for healthy teeth. Healthy gums don’t bleed.
After your dental examination Dr Diana Spencer will refer you to our hygiene clinic for an Initial Hygiene Assessment. Your teeth will be assessed for levels of bacteria, infection, bleeding and plaque and a cleaning will be carried out. If necessary, further treatments will be recommended to bring your gums to optimal health. You will be advised on more effective cleaning techniques and interdental brushes. We recommend that you visit the hygienist every 3-6 months to maintain healthy gums.
