Routine care

Dental check-ups


Routine dental examinations are essential for everyone, even for those patients who wear a full denture.  The dentist examines not only the teeth, checking for the early signs of decay, but also the gums, looking for bleeding, inflammation and the early signs of gum disease.  The dentist also examines all of the hard and soft oral tissues for pathology, including oral cancer, which can otherwise go unnoticed.  Our dentists review how frequently these routine examinations should take place.


Scaling and polishing

Our dental hygienists are on hand to clean your teeth professionally at the regular intervals which the dentist suggests.  They give oral hygiene instruction to help improve your oral health and remove the plaque and calculus [tartar] which builds up over a period of time.
