Scale and Clean and Dental Checkup at Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery
Who wouldn’t want to show off a healthy smile for life? At Berwick Dental Clinic & Surgery, we encourage our patients to take a preventative approach to their dental care. That means having regular checkups and scale and cleans that will keep your teeth and gums in great shape. At these visits, we’ll also identify any potential problems and address them straightaway so that they don’t become more complex in the future.
What to Expect
At your regular checkups, a comprehensive look of your oral health will be taken. This evaluation includes the following:
An examination of each tooth
An assessment of the gums and soft tissues of the mouth
An oral cancer screening
Taking X-rays, if needed
A scale and clean, where tartar and plaque buildup are removed, and the teeth polished to a luminous finish
Oral hygiene advice
We want you to be able to take control of your oral health, which is why we discuss your home habits with you. We’ll give you any relevant advice on products to use or techniques for brushing and flossing so that you can help keep your teeth and gums healthy between your checkups.
Frequently Asked Questions
The frequency of your checkups will depend on your level of oral health and history of oral-related diseases. We usually recommend biyearly visits. By coming in every six months, your teeth will stay healthy, and any issues can be addressed straightaway. If you have suffered from gum disease or other serious conditions, we may recommend more frequent visits. We’ll be happy to discuss our recommendations with you during your appointment.
Your checkups are an excellent opportunity to discuss other treatments that you might be interested in. If your dentist identifies any concerns, they’ll inform you of them and detail all possible treatment options. You can then book in for another appointment for these procedures.
We recommend that a child have their first checkup appointment shortly after their first teeth erupt. As they get older, we’ll teach them healthy oral habits and ensure that they never develop a fear of the dentist.
