The General Examination

 
General dental examinations should be performed on a regular basis. Most people will take advantage of these exams every six months while others will do so once a year. During the examination, your dentist will check for a number of problems including:

N
Cavities and decay
N
Periodontal diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis
N
Oral cancer screening
N
Jaw joint connection
N
Teeth wear and tear
The general dental exam is a time to ask questions and bring up any concerns about your oral health. And when complete, you can then enjoy thorough teeth cleaning and polish.

Fillings and Extractions

 
Cavities happen, and sometimes begin where the patient cannot see or feel them. This is why regular dental checkups are important, as your dentist can identify and fill the cavity before it becomes a larger problem. At the same time, fillings may wear out or become damaged, so an exam is the perfect time for the dentist to clear out any growing decay and replace the filling.

When decay is left untreated or a tooth becomes damaged, tooth extraction may be required. Extractions can be performed as soon as your dentist identifies it, if necessary. But don’t worry, dentistry has evolved and numbing is used to ensure you feel very little to no pain. We want your visit to be as stress-free as possible, so you feel confident to return for your future dental needs.

Along with oral health maintenance, regular checkups help catch and stop the spread of tooth decay and gum disease. When decay and disease are left untreated, it can spread throughout the mouth and even into other areas of the body. Loss of multiple teeth can occur and health issues such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis can be worsened by spreading infection. Because of this, regular checkups are an important part of overall preventive health care.

Dental Cleanings

 
Professional teeth cleaning is an important tool for the prevention of cavities and tooth loss. During the process, a dental hygienist will use specialised tools to remove tartar and other buildups from your teeth and gumline. Your hygienist can clean any areas that are hard to reach, and will use this time to do a secondary look around for any hidden cavities or decay.

After the cleaning, your hygienist may brush with a gritty toothpaste to help remove any leftover tartar and debris. Floss or a water-pick tool may be used to clean in between teeth and then a polish will complete the process to leave your teeth feeling beautifully clean and refreshed.
