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