Regularly visiting the clinic is one of the best things you can do for yourself. Millions of people worldwide have dental problems they would have been able to solve simply by regularly visiting the clinic. Unfortunately, most people will only go for a check-up when their problems become unbearable and inconvenient. Although this is the right thing to do, they would have been able to avoid all that.
What Goes on During a Dental Check-Up?
There are two parts to a dental clinic visit. The first will involve our professionals examining your teeth. We will take a deep look at your dental structures for this stage, looking for cavities, cracks, and many other underlying issues. X-rays might help to check for cracks and cavities that are not visible to the naked eye. The dental examination will also involve checking for plaque or tartar. This process of removing plaque is called scaling.
The next part of your visit will involve cleaning your teeth, also known as dental prophylaxis. Our professionals will use special tools to remove any plaque or tartar that has built up over time. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to get rid of tartar by brushing your teeth, which is why you need a specialist to remove it.
After cleaning your teeth, we will have a look at your gums. We use a unique tool to measure the depth of your gums and the spaces between teeth. Shallow gums are an indication of health, and deep gums indicate gum disease. The check-up will also include examining your tongue, throat, and facial structures such as the jaw and facial muscles.
Be on the Safe Side
Regularly visiting our clinics will ensure you deal with a problem before it gets out of hand. It also means your teeth will be in the healthiest environment they can be. We recommend a visit at least once every six months or twice a year. So, for the best dental care, be sure to book an appointment with us.
