Dental Cleaning & Examinations

Dentists around the world recommend a complete oral health examination and dental cleaning once every six months, and for a good reason. Dental diseases start insidiously and can go unnoticed before it gives rise to painful symptoms. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are crucial to ensure optimum oral health and help you stay ahead of any dental ailments.

Dental Examination

When you visit Essex Family Dental for regular dental check-ups, our dentist will conduct a complete oral health examination. They will check each tooth for signs of decay and damage, analyse your gum health and the health of your oral soft tissues. They may also ask you questions regarding your medical history, dietary and other habits. If you have any concerns, please talk to us and let us know. If they spot an anomaly or any sign of dental illness, they will advise further investigations that may include dental x-rays. Regular dental check-ups allow us to evaluate your mouth, which helps diagnose dental diseases at the earliest. This means you can seek immediate treatment, stop the disease from progressing, and prevent severe complications. Dental decay is caught at its initial stages can be reversed with the help of fluoride. In case it has advanced a little, prompt dental filling will be advised to stop its progression. This prevents the need for more invasive treatments like root canal therapy and dental extraction in the future. Many health complications tend to show oral signs, which dentists are well aware of; this means you can also stay at the top of your overall health with regular dental check-ups.

Dental Cleaning

Our mouth is a host of millions of bacteria. Most of these bacteria are normal commensals of the mouth, but some can be disease-causing under suitable conditions. Regular dental cleaning is a must to maintain optimum oral health. Poor oral hygiene, improper brushing and flossing lead to plaque accumulation on the teeth and near the gum line, which eventually hardens to form calculus or tartar. Plaque is a safe house for these disease-causing bacteria. These bacteria metabolize the sugars from the food we eat and release toxic by-products in the mouth. These by-products are responsible for dental decay and lead to gum inflammation-causing gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is mild and irreversible; however, it can progress to its severe destructive form of periodontitis if it remains untreated. Bleeding gums, bad breath, and foul taste, and loose teeth are signs of periodontitis. Our Essex dental cleaning removes this bacterial plaque and tartar deposits and helps prevent dental diseases. It can also aid in treating the initial stages of gum diseases and is vital for a healthy mouth. Tart teeth removal & teeth scaling are two of the most common way to improve your shiny smile.
