Patient Process – Free Consultation

For our new patients we offer a free consultation so we can asses their needs and offer the most suitable treatments to meet their needs.

The consultation will be broken down into a few stages:

  • Meet and Greet – Meet the denture technicians who make the dentures
  • Medical History – So we can ensure all treatment we offer is in line with your medical history
  • Your Denture Problems – Tell us what problems you’re currently having
  • What Do You Want With a Denture – We will note down your needs

The above consultation will all take place in a non-clinical environment, which we find the nervous patients especially like, and will act as a stepping stone to the clinical examination.

The following part of the consultation will take part in one of our surgeries so we can asses a number of things:

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder Check (TMJ) – To see if there are any problems with the joint
  • Jaw Muscle Check
  • Lymph Node Check
  • Salivary Glands Check
  • Current Denture Assessment – To see what problems your old denture was having
  • Soft Tissues Assessment
  • Diagnosis – We will tell you what our findings are and what this affects/means
  • Treatment Plan – We will propose what treatment we recommend
  • Treatment Offered Explanation – We will explain in detail all about the treatment we offer

After the free consultation you will be able to go home and think about whether you are happy with the proposed treatment plan and if you would like to proceed.
