First Visit

Your first visit to Hipperholme Dental Practice is important for us all.

At your first consultation we will listen to your reasons for attending and your expectations for treatment.

Please feel free to voice your concerns and we will do our best to help.

Before your dental assessment begins we will ask you to complete a written medical history form; the content of this form will be reviewed in strictest confidence with your dentist. Please bring a list of any medications and tablets that you take.

We will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth teeth and gums, including:

  • Examination of your gum health
  • Examination of the health of your oral soft tissues
  • Oral cancer screening check
  • Examination of the teeth
  • Assessment of existing restorations
  • Assessment or your occlusion (The way your upper and lower teeth bite together)
  • Functional assessment of your jaw joints.

It may be necessary to take photographs, study models or x-ray pictures, in order to know what may be happening inside the teeth or beneath the gums. We use modern digital x-ray equipment to ensure maximum information from a minimal x-ray dose and follow national guidelines on radiation safety. With this in mind we only prescribe x-rays on an individual basis.

Following the examination we will discuss your treatment options and provide you with a written treatment plan including an estimate of fees. If your treatment plan is straightforward we will arrange your further appointments. More complex treatments may require a further consultation to discuss treatment options in greater depth. Only when you are happy with the proposed treatment plan will we proceed to make your next appointment.
