Dental Check-Ups & Teeth Cleaning FAQs
1. Why do I need fluoride?
Fluoride makes the surface enamel of your teeth more resistant to tooth decay, and its benefits are best felt with daily brushing using fluoridated toothpaste, and concentrated fluoride during 6-monthly teeth cleaning.
2. Why should I use a soft toothbrush?
Effective removal of bacteria buildup on our teeth only requires a light amount of pressure, and a soft toothbrush is all that is needed to do this without the risk of damaging the surfaces of your teeth.
3. Why do I need x-rays?
X-rays allow us to examine areas of your mouth that we are unable to see with visual inspection of your mouth. Examples may include tooth decay under a filling, or in the spaces between your teeth.
4. How often should I have a dental check-up and teeth cleaning?
Everyone is different, and we can work out how often you should have a check-up based on the condition of your teeth and gums. This is usually every 6 months, but may be less depending on your needs.
5. Why are regular dental check-ups so important?
Regular dental Check-Ups allow our dentists to identify and treat any issues in their earliest stages, to prevent them from progressing into bigger ones that are more complicated to treat.
