“Prevention is Better than Cure When it Comes to a Routine Checkup & Clean”

Prevention is better than cure and that is exactly why a regular six-monthly routine Dental checkup and clean is:

No different to your regular car service!

Regular Dental checkups are proven to improve your:

  • Smile
  • Appearance
  • Self Confidence

Taking care of your smile by paying for a routine checkup and clean is one of the best investments you can ever make.

Because the cost of a Dental visit is nothing compared with the value of having healthy teeth.

Note: You should have a regular Dental visit at least every 6 months or as recommended by your Dental professional.

Because who knows…
Your next routine checkup and clean from My Gentle Dentist might actually help you save money!

The Cost of Missing Your Dental Routine Checkup & Clean

Scheduling a Routine Checkup & Clean may seem expensive but remember…

Missing this preventative care could cost you even more.

A lack of proper care can lead to bad breath, oral pain, tooth loss and embarrassment over your smile.

You might need more expensive treatment to repair damage if you neglect your oral health.

A Routine Checkup & Clean is your opportunity to identify and treat problems before they have the chance to get any bigger.

Taking care of your teeth along with routine Dental visits lay the foundations to preserving the longevity of your teeth.

The Value of a Regular Routine Checkup & Clean is Enormous

The 5 Step Routine Checkup & Clean Process

1. Your History

Before anything is done inside your mouth your Dentist will need to know about your medical history if:

  • This is your first appointment at My Gentle Dentist, or
  • If you have been to My Gentle Dentist before, any changes in your health such as new medications, diabetes, arthritis, pregnancy, etc.

It is important that your Dentist knows about any:

  • Health concerns
  • Anxieties, or
  • Allergies

You may have in order to avoid incident and to make sure you get the best care you need.

Fear of the Dentist is common and therefore do not be afraid to tell your Dentist absolutely anything – no matter how minor it may seem.

First Step is Always Your Medical History

2. Examining The Teeth

Before thoroughly cleaning your teeth our Dentist will then start working inside your mouth and look for the problem areas.

At the Dental check up your Dental professional will check for cavities and examine your oral hygiene.

This is to look for any signs of trouble:

  • Swelling
  • Redness, or
  • Possible signs of cancer.

X-rays might be taken to detect cavities between your teeth.

Examining The Teeth is the second Step in the Process

3. Teeth Cleaning

Once your Oral Examination is finished… My Gentle Dentist will then give your teeth a thorough cleaning.

A professional scale and clean removes plaque and tartar that you simply can’t remove when brushing and flossing at home.

Scaling Removes Plaque and Tartar.

After your teeth are scaled, they may be polished.

The polishing will make your teeth smoother and make you feel much nicer and fresh.

In most cases, a gritty paste is used for this which helps to remove any surface stains on your teeth.

Note: My Gentle Dentist recommend and perform topical application of Fluoride on all teeth as a standard procedure unless a patient has a personal preference not to do so.

The benefits of topical fluoride application far outweigh not doing the same.

Teeth Cleaning is the third Step in the Process

4. Results and Advice

After the Dental exam is complete, Your Dentist will let you know exactly what is going on in your mouth and will advise you about the next steps.

Sometimes this involves scheduling another Dental appointment for a procedure while other times your Dentist will give you advice about what you can do at home to better your oral health.

It is extremely important that you listen to this advice and put into action as best you can to ensure that your next checkup is the best it can be.

Always Listen Carefully to Results & Advice

5. Future Appointments

The final step of the routine checkup and clean is scheduling your next one for a date six months in the future.

Scheduling your next appointment right away is the easiest and most effective way to ensure that you don’t forget to have your Dental checkup regularly.

Even if you are diligent in your personal Dental care, there is no better protection against oral issues than having your mouth professionally cleaned and monitored.
