Checkup and Cleans at Mend Dental

The team at Mend Dental wants to make sure that you have great oral health. Your dentist and hygienist will advise and assist you in how to do so. With our extensive knowledge on issues such as the prevention or treatment of gingivitis and gum disease, it’s our goal to make sure both your teeth and gums stay in perfect shape.

Your Regular Checkups With Us

It’s important that you get on a regular schedule with your dental checkups. Your preventative appointments should be every six months to make sure that any potential problems are caught and addressed early on. Poor oral health is linked to many serious diseases and illnesses and can take a toll on your overall wellbeing.

  • Removal of tartar from your teeth all the way to just below the gumline
  • Advice on oral hygiene techniques
  • Recommendations of any products appropriate for you
  • An examination of your jaw and surrounding muscles
  • An oral cancer screening
  • Radiographs to identify problems not seen with the naked eye
  • Fluoride treatments or fissure sealants as needed
  • An examination of every tooth and all soft tissues

Your cleaning will be performed by our dental hygienist. All examinations are carried out by our qualified dentists. When it comes to product recommendations, it will depend on your particular situation. For example, we may think that you can benefit from using a water flosser or from switching to an electric toothbrush. We’ll also be sure to answer any questions you might have. We want to make sure that you have the information and tools to take your oral health into your own hands.

Regular scale and cleans with our hygienist help to minimise the amount of buildup under your gums, lowering your risk of periodontitis. If your gums bleed when you brush and floss, be sure to let us know! This common symptom could mean that you have something more than a minor case of gingivitis.

Active gum disease is closely linked with major health problems like diabetes, pneumonia, heart attack, stroke, infertility and premature labour. Treating periodontal infections isn’t just about saving your smile; it’s essential to having a healthy life.
