Dental Check-ups

When it comes to oral health, prevention is the best remedy and regular dental checkups are an important part of prevention. When you visit our experienced dental hygienists and dentists here at My Dentist in Alderley, Brisbane as a routine part of your oral care, you give us the chance to become familiar with your mouth and health background. This makes the process easier and helps the dentist find problems early on for easier intervention.

During a dental checkup, we will use special tools to look around your mouth for irregularities. Areas of tartar buildup might be discovered, which will lead to a cleaning that can prevent gum disease like periodontitis. A tiny cavity might be detected between teeth, leading to early intervention that could save you from a root canal or tooth replacement.

When dental problems are left untreated, they will turn into worse problems. For example, gum disease is commonly left untreated as many do not realise they have it. But it can lead to dental problems like bleeding gums and bad breath. As it progresses, it can cause loose teeth and eventually tooth loss. But what many don’t know is that the bacteria can spread and lead to internal inflammation far beyond your mouth. This health issue is related to many long-term illnesses.

When you come for your dental checkup, we will first take our time and listen to your concerns and then do the exam. During this time, don’t be shy about dental anxiety or other issues, because we want to help make your exam as comfortable as possible. And you can feel confident knowing we can use the exam for early intervention of the following:

\

Tooth decay – we can fill the cavity before the decay spreads to other teeth

\

Weak enamel – is often hereditary and can lead to more cavities than the average person, and if we find evidence of this, we can help with preventive measures

\

Gum disease – can be detected early and, in many cases, reversed

\

Fractured teeth – Sometimes teeth with old fillings becomes weak and lead to fractures and partial tooth loss, but early intervention may prevent this

Dental Cleanings – Alderley in Brisbane

 
Dental cleanings are performed by our experienced dental hygienists and are an important step in preventing dental problems, while contributing to overall optimal oral health. This professional deep cleaning is commonly performed after a dental exam, and helps in the removal of hardened plaque called tartar. This type of plaque cannot be removed with normal brushing and is often difficult to detect. But our staff of dental professionals can remove it, and check for other issues too, like determining if you need a fluoride treatment.

Regular dental cleanings are often performed every 6 months, allowing the dentist or hygienist to recognise changes in your mouth. This also contributes to early intervention and may even provide early detection of health problems like oral cancer. During your dental checkup and cleaning, you can expect the following:

We will first evaluate your oral health and medical history
You will receive an intra assessment of the gums, and an extra oral assessment, which focuses on the head and neck
We will chart our findings, which can be used to detect changes or problems in the future
If needed, you will receive digital imaging, or x-rays
The dentist will discuss findings with you, and treatment options if necessary
The dental hygienist will clean and scale your teeth to remove tartar, plaque and stains
