Regular Check-ups Will Help Save Your Teeth From Decay And Gum Disease
Twice a year, it’s recommended that you see us here at eDental so that we can keep on top of your oral hygiene and find small issues before they become big and expensive problems. We provide a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and mouth. All this is done on the comfort of our purpose built facility.
If you are a member of a health fund, then at least once a year you may not even be out-of-pocket a single cent. Use it or lose it.
What You Can Expect During Your Check-up
Scale & polish, for a bright, white smile
You’ll first see an eDental hygienist, who will gently begin to give your teeth a scale and polish. Any plaque or tartar build-up will be removed using both hand tools, and with the use of a specialised water-pick. You can expect a nice, deep clean, both above and below the gum line.
To achieve a beautiful and gleaming white smile, your hygienist will then give your teeth a gentle polish using a specialised, slow-speed polishing cup. The polish contains a mixture of a gentle abrasive paste, mixed with fluoride for strong, healthy teeth.
You’ll be left with beautifully smooth, shiny, and whitened teeth that will make your day.
Check-up From an Expert Dentist
Once you have had your scale and clean, your eDental Dentist will now provide your check-up. They’ll be looking for cavities, your general gum health, and looking for any signs of disease or other issues that will require attention.
X-Rays Let Us Know About Little Problems So They Don’t Become Big Problems
From time to time as part of your regular dental health plan, or as required, you may require a special dental/mouth X-Ray. This allows your Dentist to find any irregularities such as small cavities, impacted teeth, abscesses, or cysts on the roots of your teeth.
If your Dentist finds any small issues, then they will discuss this with you and the available treatments you have available.
What Happens After Your Check-up?
Now that you have received your check-up, your Dentist will go through any additional treatments needed to keep your teeth and oral hygiene in tip-top condition.
If there are any small issues, then these can become addressed before they are left to turn into bigger, expensive problems.
In the unlikely case that a larger complication is found, then your Dentist will again discuss the recommended treatment options, for your information. Each option will be explained to you in plain English, so that you may be able to make an informed decision.
