Screening

Dental Check up Plus

Granta Dental has developed a range of added value services which are included in your dental check up which is designed to provide every patient with objective measurements of the factors that influence dental and oral health. 

We believe regular screening is a key part of the preventative and protective approach that we take to your health.  A check up will always include the following items:

  • A review of general health and wellbeing
  • Examination of the lips, tongue and skin lining the mouth for ulcers and screening for early signs of systemic disease or cancer
  • Gums, saliva and hygiene.
  • Teeth, for cavities, cracks, wear and broken fillings
  • TMJ (jaw joints)
  • Muscles, sore face and jaw muscles can cause considerable pain and disruption to swallowing, chewing and breathing

 

Why Screen?

Monitoring or screening of these elements of oral health with objective measurements helps us accurately to find the source of any problem or pain, identify early signs of problems and implement effective prevention or avoidance of problems. Screening for oral dysfunction allows us to reduce the need for expensive, interventive treatments while protecting teeth, gums and jaw joints and reducing any ill-effects on general health.

The temporomandibular joints are particularly difficult to assess with a manual or visual examination. Joint vibration analysis records the function of the joint and reliably identifies the presence of any disruption to the joint even in the absence of symptoms. M-Scan is a quick assessment of the activity of the muscles using surface stickers. Muscle tension and over-use can cause pain that can be confused with tooth pain and is important diagnostic information.

Both the JVA and M-Scan are included in the basic price of every adult (over 18) dental examination.
