The Dentist check-up and cleaning of your mouth is a very important aspect of total mouth health.
Most people should go for a Dental Check-up at least every six months. At this check-up they should also have a Clean and Fluoride Treatment. Patient with active Gum Disease or high amounts of decay may need to go more frequently.
Dentists are checking for more than just Tooth Decay:
- Soft-tissues of the mouth for any abnormality or tumours
- Jaw Joint Assessment – for any damage or signs of grinding
- Teeth health for signs of cracks, decay, wear, erosion
- Gum health for signs of gum disease and bone loss
- Bite Setup for signs of grinding, cracks or damage caused to the teeth
- Cosmetic appearance of your teeth
- Much more
During your check-up your Dental Hygienist will be assisting the Dentist by cleaning your teeth, taking any required x-rays and advising you on your home care. Your Hygienist can take impressions for whitening and mouth-guards.
