In dentistry, prevention is definitely better than cure. Even two-times better!
Monitoring your dental condition and preventing damage play a significant role in maintaining your teeth for a lifetime.

When you come in for a routine appointment, it may involve scaling and cleaning, personalised fluoride treatments, X-rays, and a follow-up examination.

Treatments may be recommended to prevent tooth decay or to prevent existing fillings from breaking.

Dental Examinations

Regular dental examinations are a vital part of preventive dental health care.

During a dental examination, the dentist will clean your teeth and examine for tooth decay, gum disease, and other signs of oral problems.

The examination involves evaluating your risk of developing other oral problems and checking your face, mouth, and head for abnormalities.

Professional Scale and Clean

This is where dental health begins. There’s just no substitute for removing disease-causing plaque and calculus from your teeth — especially in the hard-to-reach areas near the gum line.

That’s why regular professional scaling and cleaning is so important to your health.

You might need a dental scale and clean if you…

  • have a plaque build-up on your teeth that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing,
  • want to take preventive measures to take care of your teeth, or
  • have stained teeth as a result of smoking and consuming coffee, tea, and other staining foods and drinks.

Dental scaling and root planing helps deal with persistent gum disease. They are more comprehensive than regular teeth cleaning.

Teeth scaling and root planing often take multiple dental visits and could require a local anaesthetic based on how severe your gum disease is and if your gums are receding.

Customised Fluoride Treatments

Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making teeth resistant to acid from plaque, bacteria, and sugars in the mouth. It can also reverse low levels of enamel damage.

For children under six, fluoride fuses into the developing permanent teeth, making it difficult for acids to erode the teeth.

Fluoride also helps speed up building the enamel as well as disrupt acid production in already erupted teeth of both children and adults.

X-rays

Dental X-rays (or radiographs) are images of your teeth that your dentist uses to assess your oral and general health. These X-rays use low levels of radiation to capture images of the insides of your teeth and gums. This can help your dentist detect problems, like cavities, tooth decay, and impacted teeth growth.

Dental X-rays may seem complicated, but they’re actually very common tools that are just as important as your teeth cleanings.

Frequently Asked
Questions

How often do I need to go to the dentist?
We recommend visiting the dentist two times a year for a routine check-up. For people with ongoing treatments or existing oral problems, your dentist decides on the frequency of your dental visits.
How do I take care of my teeth at home?
Brush your teeth (and tongue) at least twice a day, once before sleeping and once at another time of the day. Floss or use interdental brushes at least once a day. Have a teeth-friendly diet by reducing sugary and acidic food intake. Smoking can also affect your oral and dental health. Caring for your teeth can mean fewer dental visits.
Are dental X-rays really necessary?
There will always be oral problems that can’t be seen just by visual examination. Dental X-rays help your dentist look for the source of hidden problems. If your dentist suspects an underlying problem, a dental X-ray might be recommended.
