UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
A Check up and Clean at Thomastown Dentist includes: Examination (Check-up), Scaling (cleaning), polishing and Fluoride treatment also a digital X-Ray may be taken if required.
When we check your teeth we are examining both your teeth and gums, our Thomastown dentist can identify any potential problems including gum disease, cavities, and more, any concerns or previous treatment is recorded on your file and photos may be taken as future reference for you and our Thomastown Dentist. During a scaling and cleaning, we remove deposits such as plaque and stains from teeth and gums the clean is then followed by a polish and fluoride treatment. Fluoride can be applied in different ways but generally, we brush a high strength fluoride directly on your teeth and ask you to abstain from drinking and eating for the next 1-3 hours. Fluoride helps with any sensitivity experienced after a clean and strengthens your teeth by re-mineralising your enamel.
After your check up, scale and clean, polish and fluoride treatment we may give you some advice about how to look after your teeth and gums to prevent decay, disease and any other dental issues which can be prevented. If you are a smoker, prone to dental carries or if your dentist has concerns, we recommend that you visit our Thomastown dentist every six months. Otherwise once a year is sufficient enough to keep good oral health.
