Dental Check-Ups & Hygiene

Regularly-scheduled dental check-ups are vital for identifying potential dental health issues and maintaining strong and healthy teeth and gums. You should have regular dental examinations and a professional cleaning to prevent things like cavities, gum disease, and plaque.

Advantages of regular dental check-ups & oral hygiene

We encourage patients to book dental check-ups/oral hygiene every six months. By discovering any problems early, we can usually correct any issues with your teeth and gums conservatively, effectively, and for much less than if you let potential problems go unchecked for too long.

  • During your dental check-up, we will inspect your teeth and gums and give you tips for effective brushing and flossing and then answer your questions about your homecare routine. To clean your teeth, we will gently remove plaque and polish your teeth to a silky finish.
  • Then we will screen for tooth and gum diseases and oral problems that can escalate into serious issues if left untreated. These include oral cancer, gum disease, tooth decay, malocclusion, and faulty dental work. If we find early-stage gum disease (gingivitis) or advanced gum disease (periodontitis), we will recommend periodontal therapy.
  • And finally, our dental team will take X-rays and digital photos to help determine any underlying issues that need to be addressed. We can also discuss cosmetic dentistry enhancements if you are interested in improving the appearance of your smile.
