Promoting Good Oral Hygiene for Life
Our dentist is committed to providing education to help patients understand the importance of dental hygiene and oral health. When people are educated to brush and floss regularly, eat healthily and visit their dentist on a regular basis, they can better maintain their adult teeth and avoid dental issues. As part of our general dentistry services, we take the time to educate patients on how to best take care of their oral health and hygiene.
How Often Should I Have a Check Up?
It's recommended that you have a check-up with your dentist every 6-12 months in order to maintain healthy teeth and gums. A check-up should be booked sooner if you're experiencing a problem with your teeth, such as a toothache or visible signs of tooth decay.
What Will Happen During a Check Up?
During a check-up, the dentist will examine your teeth, gums and mouth and also speak to you to determine if you've experienced any problems since your last check-up. When examining your mouth, they'll look for signs of cavities and plaque and check that the gums are healthy. After the initial examination, the dentist may advise x-rays be taken for further investigation if required.
What Will Happen After a Check Up?
After your check-up, your dentist will speak to you about the health and condition of your teeth and inform you of any treatments that may be required, such as fillings or deep teeth cleaning. They will also discuss oral hygiene with you, such as the importance of brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing regularly.
