The examination or check-up is an essential part of maintaining your dental health. It includes assessment of the teeth, gums, jaw and soft tissues of the face, neck and mouth (such as lips, tongue, cheeks, roof of mouth etc.). On occasion, the dentist or dental professional may take dental x-rays to aid in the assessment. A diagnosis is made and a personalised treatment plan formulated.
A clean involves gentle scaling and polishing around the teeth and gums to remove all plaque, tartar and staining. The dentist or dental professional will also educate you to look after your teeth at-home.
We recommend exams and cleans every six months as this will help in early detection and treatment of dental diseases. So, take the first step and book an appointment today!
