Teeth cleaning and oral checkups

Maintaining a clean mouth by brushing and cleaning between teeth is important to keep the mouth clean and free of disease. Proper and regular cleaning helps to prevent dental diseases such as tooth decay and destructive gum disease like gingivitis and periodontitis. At South Auckland Dental, we specialise in comprehensive teeth cleaning and oral checkups.

A typical hygiene and check up appointment will involve a careful inspection of the mouth, teeth and gums. Our dentists are looking for any signs of gum disease, loose or broken teeth, damaged or failing fillings, tooth decay or oral cancers. The dentist will then scale and clean to remove any built-up debris. This may include food particles, soft plaque (bacterial growth) or hard calculus. Teeth will then be cleaned and polished using a rotating brush with a polishing paste to treat and prevent gum disease.

A hygiene and check up appointment is recommended every 6 months to maintain a healthier life. Regular hygiene and check up appointments are not only imperative to maintaining a winning smile but absolutely vital to maintaining overall health. Skipping these appointments not only jeopardises teeth but also creates a greater risk of heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
