Importance of a Periodontal Examination in Sutton

We all have to get the car Serviced and  MOT’d once a year, so why not our mouths? A dentist at Sutton feels that more often than not, we sideline our own health problems in favour more material pursuits. A periodontal examination is the only way to effectively gauge the state of our oral health and rectify any problems that may be diagnosed- just like the motor. So starting with the gums, dentists will check for any signs of gum disease, bleeding gums, swelling gums, receding gums, gum pockets, periodontitis and gingivitis. The colour of your gums, tongue and cheeks will indicate any precancerous conditions. They will also check for lesions in the mouth. Then they will check the teeth for build up of plaque and tartar, teeth colouration, worn teeth, missing teeth, any signs of grinding and root exposure before moving on to any restoration work such as bridges, crowns, implants, dentures and fillings. Most importantly, they will measure the alignment of the occlusion. Once every detail is checked and recorded , they can make a complete diagnosis of your oral hygiene and if there is any sign of a problem, they can advise you on treatments or refer you to a specialist. Impressions and x-rays may be taken to help in your diagnosis and in special cases, they may insist on a panoramic radiograph of the skull. This will highlight any sinus or jaw joint problems. If certain treatments are required, the dentist can then chart your progress to see if the treatments are affective and let’s not forget that prevention is better than cure.
