Why You Need Dental Check-Up?

professional teeth cleaning melbourne

There are many reasons why you may need a dental check-up :

  • Dental check-ups are necessary to keep your mouth clean and germ-free.
  • There are many spots in your mouth that are difficult to reach and clean without professional tools and help.
  • Professional cleaning will efficiently remove bacteria build-up and tartar that could further damage your oral health if left untreated.
  • Cavities may be overlooked because it is difficult for you to examine your teeth thoroughly.
  • Dentists can notice the underlying risk or those diseases that do not have any symptoms.
  • Dentists can precisely monitor the changes (if any) that have occurred in your mouth and treat them before causing any complications.
  • The early detection prevents the need for expensive and complicated treatments in the future.
  • It helps in maintaining oral health as well as your general wellbeing.

For exceptional dental cleaning in Melbourne, The Smile Designer is your go-to destination, offering a range of services from teeth cleaning to scaling.

What Our Dental Hygiene Services Can Do For You?

We recommend regular dental visits every six months to maintain dental health and hygiene. Your routine dental check-up appointment with The Smile Designer is more than just cleaning plaque and tartar off your teeth. It helps us address the early signs of dental problems and give the appropriate treatment before becoming more severe or complicated.Our first step in a  dental check-up starts with an assessment. Our dentist will ask questions regarding your dental health history, family health history, and your lifestyle and habits, like smoking and diet. We ask questions to understand your oral health and to analyse the risk factors that you may have.We will examine your mouth to identify plaques, tartar, cavities, or any other issues. We will check the firmness of your gum to diagnose whether you carry any risk of gum disease. Our dental professional will tailor preventive treatment procedures to suit your specific requirement based on the dental examination.Our treatment plan may include several services depending on your oral condition. Some of them are scaling, polishing, taking a digital x-ray, evaluating gum disease, checking for soft tissue pathology, cleaning tartar and plaque, fluoride treatment, oral health education, home dental care advice, and much more.

Scaling And Polishing

dental check up and clean MelbourneWe perform scaling to remove tartar and bacteria build-up from your teeth. It is a non-surgical method, which does not require anaesthesia. We use professional dental tools to carefully clean every area of your mouth that your toothbrush cannot reach.The scaling process is followed by polishing. Polishing makes the teeth surface smooth and removes stains, providing you with a sparkling smile.

Dental X-Ray’s

An X-ray helps us to identify the hidden issues in your mouth. It allows us to see the structure of your teeth. For example, it will enable us to detect the wisdom tooth position that is tucked into your gums.

Importance of Professional Teeth Cleaning

Regular professional teeth cleaning is a crucial aspect of maintaining excellent oral health. It goes beyond what you can achieve with daily brushing and flossing. Here’s why professional teeth cleaning matters:

Difference Between Routine Cleaning and Deep Cleaning

Routine dental cleaning, also known as prophylaxis, is typically performed every six months. It involves the removal of plaque, tartar, and surface stains from your teeth. It helps prevent cavities and gum disease.
Deep cleaning, also called scaling and root planing, is more comprehensive. It’s recommended when there is a significant buildup of tartar and bacteria below the gumline. This procedure helps treat gum disease by removing infection and promoting gum tissue healing.

Teeth Cleaning Advantages

  • Preventative Care: Regular professional teeth cleaning prevents plaque and tartar buildup, reducing the risk of cavities and gum disease.
  • Fresh Breath: Cleaning removes bacteria that can cause bad breath, leaving your mouth feeling fresh.
  • Brighter Smile: Professional cleaning can remove surface stains, resulting in a brighter, whiter smile.
  • Early Detection: During cleanings, dental professionals can identify early signs of dental issues, allowing for timely intervention.

Teeth Cleaning Cost Melbourne

The cost of teeth cleaning in Melbourne can vary depending on factors like the type of cleaning needed, the dental clinic, and your location. Routine cleanings are generally more affordable than deep cleanings. It’s essential to discuss costs with your our dentist before the procedure.

Professional Teeth Cleaning Payment Plans

 Be sure to inquire about payment options with your dental provider to find the one that suits your budget.

Can Dental Cleaning Damage Teeth

Professional dental cleanings, when performed by a trained dental professional, should not damage your teeth. In fact, they are essential for maintaining good oral health. Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if left untreated. However, if dental cleaning is performed improperly or too aggressively, it could potentially cause damage. That’s why it’s crucial to visit a qualified dentist or dental hygienist for your cleanings.

Can I Get Deep Teeth Cleaning While Having Invisalign

Yes, you can get deep teeth cleaning while undergoing Invisalign treatment. Invisalign aligners are removable, which makes it convenient to receive dental cleanings and other dental procedures. It’s essential to inform your dentist or orthodontist about your Invisalign treatment so they can work around your treatment plan and provide the necessary care to maintain your oral health during the Invisalign process. Regular cleanings and check-ups are still important while undergoing orthodontic treatment like Invisalign.
