Prevention and monitoring are important in helping you maintain your teeth for a lifetime. When you come for a maintenance appointment, it may involve cleaning, fluoride treatment, X-rays, and scheduling a follow-up examination.
Treatment may be recommended to prevent tooth decay or to prevent existing fillings from breaking.
Treatments might include:
Regular dental examinations are key parts of preventive health care.
During a dental exam, the dentist or dental hygienist will clean your teeth and examine for cavities and gum disease.
The exam involves evaluating your risk of developing oral problems and checking your face, neck, and mouth for irregularities.
Professional Scale and Clean
This is where dental health starts. There’s no substitute for removing disease-causing dental plaque and calculus from your teeth — especially in hard-to-reach areas near the gum line.
That’s why regular professional scaling and cleanings are so important to your health.
You might need a scale and clean if you…
- have plaque or calculus on your teeth that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing alone,
- want to take preventative measures to take care of your teeth,
- have teeth that are stained from smoking,
- have temporomandibular joint pain, or
- have stained teeth as a result of consuming coffee, tea, and other staining foods and beverages.
Teeth scaling and root planing help deal with persistent gum disease. They are more in-depth than a regular teeth cleaning and may often take several dental visits.
They can also require a local anaesthetic based on the severity of your persistent gum disease and if you have receding gums.
Personalised Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making teeth resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
It also reverses premature decay. For children under six years, fluoride fuses into the developing permanent teeth, making it difficult for acids to demineralise the teeth.
Fluoride also helps speed remineralisation and disrupt acid production in already erupted teeth of both children and adults.
