Consultations: What We Do

Dental Consultations at Creative Smiles, Jersey

Our consultations are comprehensive check-ups to give our patients total piece of mind, find a solution for any existing dental problems and to help them achieve their perfect smile.

Full Mouth Examination

We check our patient’s mouth for any signs of tooth decay and dental disease. As well as examining teeth, we also look at the condition and health of gums, tongue, lips and cheeks.

Bite & Jaw Joints Examination

Jaw problems are often caused by habits like tooth grinding, which can lead to muscle tension, facial pain and headaches. Our screening process includes a check of our patient’s joints to see how their teeth bite together. In some cases, it might be necessary to carry out additional examinations using our modern equipment – this will help us find a solution to any problems that might be occurring.

Digital Smile Design & Video Analysis

Digital smile design is an innovative dental treatment that allows our patient’s to preview their perfect smile before any treatment has taken place. This process involves taking digital photographs of their teeth and may also include video recording of them speaking, to show how they’ll look during conversation.

X-Rays & Impressions

To check bone mass around the teeth, as well as identifying signs of decay or disease, we take x-rays of our patient’s mouth. They’re also useful for examining wisdom teeth, which can sometimes cause pain, discomfort or dental problems for patient’s in the future. We might also take simple impressions of your teeth to refer to and for our records.

Gum Health Checks & Oral Cancer Screening

Gum health checks and oral cancer screenings are extremely important, as both can be present without displaying notable or visible symptoms.

Our gum health checks are useful for identifying early signs of gum disease, meaning we can put measures in place and treat it before it worsens.

Oral cancer screenings are done annually, including a visual examination of the patient’s whole mouth. Using a specially designed camera, any oral mucosal abnormalities can be spotted, looking at the surface layers of the skin to determine any changes to a normal, healthy mouth.

Reassuring Nervous Patients

Dental phobias or anxieties around visiting the dentist are a common occurrence. Our whole team have a wealth of knowledge and experience in helping nervous patients to feel at ease during their visit. Patient’s will have an opportunity to have all of their questions answered during their visit. More information can be found on our nervous patients & sedation page.  

Addressing Concerns

Once we’ve gathered all of the relevant information, we’ll discuss the treatment options with the patient. At Creative Smiles, we’re proud to provide some of the most innovative treatments in modern dentistry.

We always highlight the importance of the patient communicating with their dentist on an ongoing basis. Not only highlighting concerns around their dental wellbeing and oral health, but discussing what they’d like to change from a cosmetic and aesthetic perspective. Our experienced and talented team will consider the patient’s needs and budget to draw up their bespoke treatment plan.
