Frequently Asked Questions

The routine dental health appointment many of us know as a “check-up and clean” is a very important preventative health measure for people of all ages. These sessions involve a comprehensive dental examination where your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth to check the health of your teeth, gums and oral tissues. Dental x-rays may be used to better evaluate your oral health and diagnose potential problems that cannot be detected by the naked eye alone.


This is followed by a clean of your teeth and gums which involves dental scaling, a pain-free and non-surgical procedure that leaves patients feeling like their teeth have been “deep-cleaned”. During this procedure, your dentist removes all the plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) above and below the gumline.


Removing plaque or tartar build-up helps reduce your chances of getting cavities. Once your teeth are cleaned, they are polished and any stains are removed to maintain your oral hygiene.

While brushing and flossing your teeth daily is essential, your biannual (every six months) dental check-up is equally important for the following reasons.

  • Gum Disease prevention: The build-up of bacteria can lead to gum inflammation and gum disease. A routine professional dental check-up and cleaning will ensure better gum health.
  • Preventing cavities: Excess plaque can lead to tooth cavities. While your daily brushing may prevent plaque build-up up to a certain extent, the interdental build-up may still cause cavities. A professional clean will ensure that your entire teeth are thoroughly cleaned to reduce your chance of cavities to large extent.
  • Early detection of dental issues: during your appointment, your dentist can detect early signs of dental issues so that you can address them before they progress, saving you the hassle and expensive treatment.
