Blacktown Scale and Clean Hygiene Visits

Woman admiring smile in mirrorWhen it comes to keeping your smile as healthy as possible, prevention is the key. Thanks to routine dental hygiene visits, we’ll be able to look after your teeth and gums to keep them in the best shape possible.

A Scale and Clean Every Six Months

During your hygiene appointment, we’ll clean away soft plaque and calcified tartar buildup then polish off any stain accumulations that have formed since your last checkup. Not only will you leave with a luminous and smooth finish, you’ll be given a ‘blank slate’ that’s easier to clean and maintain between visits.

What We’re Looking for

Part of your hygiene appointment at Blacktown Dental Group will include an exam of your teeth, existing restorations and any necessary X-rays. We’ll also perform an oral cancer evaluation and periodontal exam.

By pinpointing any concerns at the earliest stage of development, we can intervene in less-invasive methods or perhaps reverse them altogether. For example, the onset of gingivitis can be addressed with a more rigorous oral hygiene routine before it progresses into gum disease and tooth loss.

Our healthiest patients benefit from a scale and clean every six months. If you’re recovering from gum disease, we may need to see you for a maintenance visit as frequently as every 3-4 months.

Gum Disease Symptoms

If you’re exhibiting signs of periodontitis, it’s best to see our family Dentist straightaway. Look for signs such as:

  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Swelling along the gumlines
  • Bad breath
  • Receding gums (‘long teeth’)
  • Tooth mobility

Checkups for Children

We recommend bringing your child in for a checkup at a young age, acclimating them to the dental office and allowing us to monitor the development of their smile before bigger concerns arise later.
