The 5 Step Routine Checkup & Clean Process
1. Your Medical History:
Before operating your mouth, your Dentist will need to know about your medical history.
-Whether this is your first visit or you have previously visited My Gentle Dentist.
Example: Arthritis, Diabetes, Pregnancy, Anxieties, Allergies
It is common to be nervous and scared before visiting your Dentist. Nevertheless, do not hesitate to tell your Dentist anything, no matter how minor it may seem.
2. Examining the Teeth
We begin by performing a physical examination of your entire mouth before starting the cleaning process.
A small mirror is used to look for potential problems like Swelling and Redness around your teeth and gums.
Additionally, X-Rays are utilised to detect cavities between teeth.
3. Teeth Cleaning
Once your Oral Examination is over, your Dentist at My Gentle Dentist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning.
Professional Cleaning & Scaling removes Plaque and Tartar that you can’t get rid of when brushing and flossing at home.
Tartar includes Bacteria that can infect and inflame your gums; therefore, it’s crucial to get rid of it regularly. Its removal lowers your risk of tooth decay and gum disease while also improving the appearance of your smile.
Following the removal of tartar, your treatment will be completed by polishing your teeth.
Note: My Gentle Dentist recommends and performs topical application of Fluoride on all teeth as a standard procedure unless a patient has a personal preference not to do so.
4. Results and Advice
After the Dental exam is complete, Your Dentist will let you know precisely what is going on in your mouth and advise you about the next steps.
Sometimes this involves scheduling another Dental Appointment.
Furthermore, your Dentist will counsel you on how to maintain your oral health at home.
It is vital that you listen to this advice and put it into action.
5. Future Appointments
The final step of the Routine Check-up and Cleaning is scheduling your next appointment after six months. It is advisable to visit your Dentist at least once every six months.
Scheduling your next appointment right away is the easiest and most effective way to ensure that you don’t forget to have your Dental check-up regularly.
Even if you take sound care of your teeth at home, there is no better way to bypass oral problems than to get your mouth professionally cleaned and monitored.
