While daily brushing and flossing can help maintain your good oral health it is vitally important that you have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Regular check-ups gives your dentist the opportunity to detect and treat any problem areas before they become serious issues.
During the appointment, one of our friendly dental hygienists will “scale” your teeth, which is the process that will remove any excess plaque and tartar from your teeth. The scaling process can also remove any minor stains, keeping your teeth looking bright and healthy. The hygienist can determine if your daily dental care routine is effective and suggest any changes that may be necessary.
Once the cleaning is complete, the dentist will look at your teeth and check for signs of any potential problems, including oral cancer. When it comes to serious dental health problems, early detection is your best defence.
Keeping your smile looking bright and healthy is an easy thing to do. Regular cleaning appointments will help ensure that your teeth stay that way. If you are in need of a cleaning or just a general check-up, call to book your appointment today.
