What are dental check-up?

Our team of experienced dentists, specialists, and dental hygienists will take the time to listen to your needs and concerns carefully before we commence our checkups. During the check-up, a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and the surrounding tissue will be carried out. Where necessary, we will take digital X-rays and intra-oral digital photographs to aid our diagnosis.

Your Mouth-Body Connection

It’s important to see your dentist every six months since the health of your mouth might be an indicator of problems elsewhere in your body. For example, a cavity might spread to the tooth’s core and result in infection there. The bacteria can enter the circulation and produce a dangerous systemic illness if not treated with root canal therapy. For the same reasons, studies have shown a connection between gum disease and other health conditions like diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and cardiovascular disease, making routine checkups important for catching gum disease early enough to reverse it and reduce your risk of developing other health issues.

One of our skilled and experienced dental hygienists will do a comprehensive cleaning after a thorough inspection and evaluation. Two professional cleanings a year are suggested to keep teeth free of cavities and to catch any problems with oral health early. Having your teeth cleaned by a professional reinforces the oral hygiene habits you develop at home.

Adults should wash their teeth three times a day and floss once a day, however, this is not the case for many people. A skilled dental hygienist will perform a deep cleaning on your teeth twice a year, which will include polishing and a fluoride treatment to keep them healthy and free of cavities.
