Dental MOT (the ultimate check-up)
Our Dental MOT is a thorough, and gentle, dental assessment to diagnose existing issues, scan for unseen problems and restart your journey to great dental health. The Dental MOT goes well beyond a standard check-up. This 30-45 minute appointment will usually include a 3D scan of your mouth, x-rays, oral cancer screening, private assessment of your teeth, gum health review and an oral health report.
About our Dental MOT
Our thorough, innovative, and gentle dental assessment will diagnose existing issues, scan for unseen problems, and lead you to excellent dental health. It’s the ultimate dental check-up. Our Dental MOT is ideal if you have particular concerns about your teeth and mouth or haven’t been able to visit a dentist recently.
The 30–45 minute Dental MOT appointment includes:
- Oral cancer screening: Our dentists and dental therapists always complete an oral cancer screening when patients attend appointments.
- Full 3D scan of your teeth (if clinically necessary): our state-of-the-art technology creates a 3D image of your mouth. It helps our dentists to identify current, though perhaps unseen, issues and predict future problems.
- X-rays: these allow us to see between and inside your teeth. X-rays (also known as radiographs) enable our dentists to see the condition of your teeth, the roots, and the health of your jawbone.
- A private assessment of your teeth: our highly trained clinicians will diagnose any high-risk issues and confirm how stable and healthy your mouth is.
- A review of your gum health: we’ll screen the gums around each tooth for signs of disease. If necessary (and available), we can refer you for a private hygienist appointment to get your gum health back on track.
- An Oral Health report: This details the current health of your mouth, teeth and gums and any recommended home care.
- Treatment options: for those with issues such as disease, decay, and infection, our dentists will suggest treatment options to restore your dental health. A treatment plan will then be produced to eliminate any disease, decay, or infection and any urgent treatment needs (if agreeable).
At the Gentle Touch practice, we believe in prevention so that we may help to avoid the need for any future treatment. If, however, treatment is recommended to restore decayed or broken-down teeth, we practice minimally invasive dentistry. For example, composite resin (white fillings) and onlay restorations. The more of the natural tooth we can preserve, the better the prognosis your teeth will have.
