General dentistry (oral examination) is essential for maintaining good dental health. This is a proven preventative health initiative against oral disease and tooth decay. Regular checkups allow us to ensure we stay ahead of any developing issues with your teeth and gums thus preventing costly treatments later on. From time to time you may need x-rays to identify any dental issues, not obvious visually. It’s good to visit your dentist every 6 months so any problems will be detected earlier and any treatment needed will then be more conservative.
A regular guide for teeth cleaning is every six months by a dental hygienist and is ideal for keeping your mouth healthy. A dental hygienist will carefully remove any plaque and tartar that has accumulated since your last dental visit, leaving your teeth as clean as possible. The scale and clean visit usually finishes with a fluoride treatment.
Fluoride works by restoring minerals to tooth surfaces where bacteria may have invaded the enamel. Fluoride can help stop the decay from penetrating into the deeper part of teeth (the dentin). It can also inhibit the growth of harmful oral bacteria and so prevent cavities as well.
