Dental Exams and Hygiene at Praxis Dental

Dr Ishita examining a patientRegular preventative dental care is one of the most important steps to ensure that teeth and gums stay healthy. Because so many dental problems are preventable, our goal is to assist you in maintaining your oral health while minimising the risk of minor issues developing into major problems.

Earlier intervention means less-invasive and more proactive care focusing more on prevention rather than treatment. This approach is also generally quicker, involving less discomfort, and more cost effective as any potential issues are dealt with at a much earlier stage.

The importance of Biyearly Check Ups and Clean

Not only can neglecting your mouth affect your oral health but your overall health as well. Visiting your dentist every six months for a check-up prevents tooth decay, gum disease and other issues from affecting your oral and general health. A regular professional scale and clean, removes any plaque and tartar build-up from your teeth and beneath the gum line and help prevent minor issues develop into major problems.

What to expect at your comprehensive exam and scale & clean appointment

banner-offer2At our Praxis Dental practice, we perform a very thorough dental examination and checking your teeth for tooth decay is just one part of it. After reviewing your medical and dental history, your dentist will address any concerns that you may have. They will evaluate your face, teeth, gums, mouth, saliva, bite, tongue and throat. A routine check for oral cancer and jaw joint (TMJ) is also performed. Digital dental photographs and dental x-rays may also be taken during this appointment.

Your dentist will then perform a scale and clean on your teeth to remove plaque, stains and tartar build up. They will offer advice on good oral hygiene practices & products to use at home, correct brushing technique, healthy diet and help you integrate them into your daily life.
Once your check-up and clean is completed, your dentist will discuss the health of your teeth and gums and any treatment required. You will also be provided with a treatment plan, information on fees, services available, payment plans and future appointments. Your dentist will then answer any questions that you may have regarding your visit and treatment plan.
