Check Up & Clean
A comprehensive dental exam will be performed by your dentist at your initial dental visit in Dentaland.
Your dentist will look at the following:
Oral cancer screening:
Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
Gum disease evaluation:
Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
Examination of tooth decay:
All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments.
Examination of existing restorations:
Check current fillings, crowns, dental implants etc.
Examination of diagnostic x-rays (radiographs):
Dental radiographs are essential for detection of caries, tumours, cysts, and bone loss. X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
Professional Dental Cleaning
Your cleaning appointment will include a dental exam and the following:
Removal of calculus:
Calculus is hardened plaque that has been left on the teeth for some time and is firmly attached to the tooth surface. Calculus forms above and below the gum line and can only be removed with special dental instruments.
Removal of plaque:
Plaque is a sticky, almost invisible film that forms on the teeth. It is a growing colony of living bacteria, food debris, and saliva which is the initial cause for dental caries and gum diseases. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums. This inflammation is the start of periodontal disease!
Remove stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling.
