Brushing and flossing help keep your mouth clean and healthy. They are your primary weapons against dental issues.
However, brushing and flossing are not enough. They do not guarantee a risk-free mouth. Only your dentist can give you that security.
Smiles Nambour is your trusted dentist in the Nambour region to take care of the aspects of dental health that you have no control of. At Smiles Nambour, we have multiple preventive dentistry services to keep your teeth in their best form. Read on and learn how we can help.
Dental Check-Ups at Smiles Nambour
Your oral health isn’t only about achieving the smile of your dreams. There is also the matter of keeping that dream smile for a lifetime.
Good oral hygiene habits can go a long way. However, they are not enough. For example, during brushing, not all areas in the mouth are properly brushed. The molars are one of these areas. Over time, they become susceptible to decay and cavities.
A neglected molar can open a can of worms of endless dental problems. Before this can happen, you need the help of your dentist.
Only your dentist can completely clean your teeth, remove all the plaque in your mouth, and ensure that your mouth is risk-free.
What Happens During A Dental Check-Up?
In a dental check-up, your dentist may perform different dental treatments depending on what you need.
Your teeth’s status is checked first. Your dentist may perform an X-ray to ensure better results. A dental scale and clean may also be performed to remove all the plaque and tartar deposits on your teeth. Screening for oral health disease, such as an oral cancer screening, will also be performed by your dentist.
Your dentist may create a personalised plan that you have to follow. This may include the dental treatments you need and oral hygiene instructions.
How Often Do You Need To See Your Dentist?
A regular dental check-up is scheduled twice annually (once every six months). During this check-up your dentist may perform varying services depending on the status of your teeth and what you need.
A dental scale and clean, for example, may not be performed at every dental check-up. Exact scheduling of scale and cleans is a subject for your dentist’s discretion.
