Full mouth examination

We look at your teeth for signs of health or disease. Your gums and the supporting structures, and your tongue and cheeks and lips.

Your jaw (or temporomandibular) joint is located up close to your ear. It can be affected by dentistry and habits such as tooth grinding. Sometimes we hear clicks which are generally harmless but can be associated with muscle tension which can be a cause of headaches or facial pain.

Our health screening includes a check of your joints and how your teeth are biting together. If required, we can carry out more detailed analysis utilising computerised sensors.
