Checkup and Clean
At Clear Choice Dental, we take dental hygiene seriously.
If you wish to enjoy good oral health for a long time, proper tooth care is of the highest importance. A periodic checkup and clean of your mouth should be part of your dental ritual. Studies have strongly suggested that poor maintenance of your teeth may have serious implications on your general wellbeing and health later on in life.
Our dental hygienist will take the time to review your brushing and flossing techniques. The hygienist is a valuable part of our team to help educate you on how to maximise the home dental care for you and your family. To maintain the health of your teeth and gums, we recommend you visit us every six months. During these appointments we thoroughly check your teeth and gums.
Checkups become extra important for those people who have a history of dental problems like gum disease, decay, jaw problems or crooked teeth. In a few cases they may need regular reviews until adequate oral health has been successfully established. Diabetes, smoking, use of medications which cause dry mouth, periodontal disease, gum disease, pregnancy and poor oral hygiene are just a few of the considerations that will give your dentist a lead on how frequently you will have to go in for a checkup and clean.
When you visit us for checkups, our dentists will also check the surrounding regions of your mouth for signs of oral cancer or any other disease so that they can be tackled in its early stages. Prevention is better than a cure.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we encourage you to discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
