Add a Spring Dental Checkup to Your Spring Cleaning Plans
Spring cleaning should be about more than just cleaning up in and around your house. It should be a time to tune-up and refresh any area of your life, including your dental health.
Scheduling your dental checkups so that one of your bi-annual visits falls in the early spring time is a great way to head into the warmer temperatures with one of your most important health check-ups already taken care of.
You should especially take the time to book an appointment for a dental checkup with the Hamilton dentists at the Eastgate Dental Centre if it's been much longer than 6 months since your last cleaning and examination. Our Hamilton family and child dentistry services ensure that every member of the family receive the highest quality care for their dental needs.
What to Expect During a Dental Checkup
During a dental checkup at the Eastgate Dental Centre, our dentists and hygienists place a special focus on preserving your dental health, preventing future dental health issues, and providing diagnostic services for areas that may need more attention.
Every dental checkup involves a thorough teeth cleaning and scraping of any tarter buildup. A tooth polishing is then done in order to remove any persistent plaque or staining. Your teeth will be flossed and given a topical fluoride treatment that aids in the prevention of cavities and tooth decay.
After the cleaning you will receive some tips and pointers on how to better take care of your oral health. Your dentist or hygienist will discuss any issues that they may have detected in how well you brush and floss, and show you how to brush and floss more effectively.
If it has been a while since your last X-ray, or if there are areas of concern that may call for one, then a new X-ray will likely be done. X-rays only take a few minutes and are a powerful tool for allowing dental professionals to see what is going on underneath your gums and to choose the proper preventative and treatment measures.
Finally, dental checkups end with an examination which takes into account your latest X-rays and a visual inspection of the health of your mouth. This will identify cavities or signs of problems such as gum disease. You'll be given the opportunity to schedule an appointment to address any other dental issues.
