CHECK UP & CLEAN
Here at Cotton Tree Dental, maintaining your oral health is our number one priority. Regular dental examinations and cleans are essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy, and can also prevent the need for major work in the future. We recommend that our valued patients visit our practice every six months to maintain the health and integrity of your smile.
During your appointment, you can expect a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth and gums, and you will be asked if you have any specific concerns or issues with your teeth. We look for signs of tooth decay, loose or broken teeth, damaged tooth fillings and prosthetics, and gum disease. Detecting these problems early can prevent them from escalating into more serious complications that may be harder, if not impossible, to repair.
Our professional cleans remove the plaque and tartar above the gum line that cannot be removed by brushing alone. Removal of tartar prevents diseases from occurring and can also prevent bad breath. Lastly, fluoride will be applied to your teeth to help remineralise the outer layer of your teeth, known as your enamel.
Contact our friendly staff today to arrange your next dental examination and hygiene maintenance appointment, and learn more about how you can take care of your oral health at home. We look forward to building a professional relationship with you to ensure your smile remains happy and healthy!
