Check Up and Clean
It is recommended to book regular six monthly dental check up and clean appointments as part of a healthy dental routine. Many people question the need for a six monthly dental check-up; however it is during these appointments that we thoroughly exam your mouth and teeth for signs of potential troubles. It is also during this appointment that we perform a scale and polish to remove calculus that cannot be removed by simply brushing and flossing.
At some appointments we may take x-rays of your teeth and jaws to perform a comprehensive examination. These allow us to check for any potential damage inside or between teeth that is not visible in an external examination. This also allows us to check the health of the tooth roots and jaw bone.
