Check-Up And Teeth Cleaning – My Local Dentists

At My Local Dentists, we are a team of dentists striving to build a community of bigger, brighter, and healthier smiles. We are firm believers in the prevention and early diagnosis of dental problems. That is why we strongly encourage you to get regular general check-ups and teeth cleaning with us if you live in the area.

If you are somebody looking to get your teeth cleaning and dental check-up, then head over to any of our clinics. Our compassionate dentistry team will help you get your dental problems fixed in a jiffy.

Why Consider a Dental Check-up and Teeth Cleaning?

Dental decay and gum disease often stay inconspicuous in the early stages. Patients hardly experience any pain at this point. You may feel occasional sensitivity or slight gum bleeding on brushing, but nothing that prompts you to rush to our general dentists. The pain or discomfort becomes apparent only when the cavity or gum disease progresses to its advanced stages. Treating the problem at this stage is challenging. That is why getting regular cleaning and dental check-ups at our clinics is so essential. Our general dentists are Australian graduates with years of experience under their belt.

What happens at a dental check-up and cleaning?

Before we start

We ensure our patients are relaxed and comfortably seated in the dental chair. Anxious patients can request happy gas to calm their nerves.

Medical history check

During a general check-up and teeth cleaning in our clinic, we make a thorough check of your medical history and then perform a full-mouth examination. 

Oral cancer screening

We check for signs of decay or damage to the teeth and screen for oral cancer. We also do a comprehensive gum examination to check for signs of gum disease. 

Clean and polish

Finally, we thoroughly clean the teeth to remove soft (plaque) and hard (tartar) deposits. The last round of polishing to remove surface discolourations may also be performed at this time.

If you’re interested in getting a clean or dental check-up, call us or visit any of our clinic locations to book an appointment. We have a sympathetic team of dental care providers who are always willing to assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the steps in general check-ups and teeth cleaning?

We typically perform a general check-up and teeth cleaning in our clinic in two parts:

  • The first part is the oral cavity and teeth examination
  • The second part is the teeth cleaning and scaling services
Why do I need an X-ray in a dental check-up?

We might have to take an OPG (full mouth X-ray) or several digital tooth X-rays to check for hidden issues that are not visible in the clinical examination.

What are the benefits of a routine check-up and teeth cleaning?

Timely dental check-ups and cleaning ensure your teeth are healthy by identifying and treating dental problems in their early stages. Many dental issues only become known when a patient experiences symptoms. By visiting the dentist every six months, you can ensure your dental problems are treated well before they turn into anything serious. They may even be prevented altogether by following a regimen of dental cleaning.
