Teeth and gum condition is best checked every six months – thanks to this, the dentist can carry out any necessary treatment before the problem is too advanced. After setting a convenient date – by phone or in person at the centre – the patient comes to the reception desk on the set date with a document confirming his or her identity, preferably a few minutes before the agreed time. The receptionists check the patient's details and indicate where to use a disposable toothbrush and toothpaste to refresh the oral cavity before the appointment.
The first appointment is of key importance from the entire treatment point of view, which is why at Scandinavian Clinic we attach special importance to it. It begins with a medical interview conducted by a doctor who is interested in the history of the previous treatment, the ailments experienced, possible diseases and medication taken, which may be an obstacle to conducting some procedures..The information obtained allows the doctor to determine the optimal scope of treatment required by the patient.
The next part of the visit is the check-up of the patient's teeth. At the check-up the dentist checks the condition of teeth and gums for enamel condition, the presence of caries or cavities. Where necessary, the diagnostics can be completed by taking a cross-sectional X-ray image (panoramic radiography) which may be required to complete the diagnosis and plan the comprehensive treatment.
Initial treatment plan
After the check-up, the doctor informs the patient about the condition of their teeth, and then proposes an initial treatment plan. This plan takes into account the individual situation of the patient – their needs, expectations, financial possibilities, as well as lifestyle and work. If possible, and with patient consent, the doctor goes on to treat the first problem. The appointment ends with setting up the date of the next appointment. If necessary, the doctor refers the patient for additional examinations or consultations with other specialists of the centre and in justified cases also to doctors of other fields of medicine. After leaving the doctor's surgery, the patient receives additional materials which will allow him or her to take even better care of their teeth.
