General dentistry services for the whole family
The best thing for your oral health is to have your natural teeth for life. We know that prevention is always better than a cure and for this reason, we believe strongly in preventive care for our patients.
In addition to an active at-home maintenance routine and a healthy diet, dental check-ups are a crucial aspect of keeping your teeth and mouth healthy. We recommend seeing us every six months so we can have a thorough understanding of the condition and development of your oral health. This means we will catch any dental issues that may arise as early as possible and fix them before they become an extensive problem. We are certain of the importance of dealing with small dental issues before they become serious so that we can nip any emerging problems in the bud.
Dental care starts with dental check-ups
Your best defence at combatting decay is to follow a consistent and thorough oral health routine. This means brushing teeth twice a day, flossing once every day, consuming foods and drinks low in sugars and acids, and visiting the dentist every six months.
When you visit us for a full oral examination, we will perform analyses of your:
- Gum and bone health
- Existing restorations (if any)
- Soft and hard tissues for oral cancer
- Presence of decay or infection
- Bite and bone density
A scale and clean
Finally, we will perform a full scale and clean. Tartar and plaque can become trapped in areas of the mouth and left on the surface of the teeth, which can cause decay and further damage to your enamel. Because of this, most patients prefer to receive a scale and clean during their visit. This is the process of removing build-up from the teeth that cannot be removed by simply brushing and flossing.
