Professional Teeth Cleaning
The goal of general and preventative dentistry at Skygate Dental Brisbane is to help you maintain optimal health. During the dental exam & oral health check and clean the teeth are inspected for any signs of tooth decay or breakdown such as cavities, fractures, trauma, or broken teeth. The gums are also checked; this is called a periodontal analysis. A professional teeth cleaning involves removal of plaque and tartar build up with an ultra sonic. The scale and clean assists in maintaining your dental health as well as reducing the potential for gum disease. When left untreated plaque can lead to increased risks of gum disease for patients.
Dental cleans are essential to maintaining tooth and gum health. Cleaning teeth is the start of the journey with the team at the Skygate Dental clinic.
Gum disease is often over-looked and a full assessment of the tissues is needed to determine the risk status. The soft tissues will be checked for any signs of pathology, such as oral cancer. Further, the quality and quantity of the saliva will be assessed to determine if it is within the normal range, important for sufferers of dry-mouth. The hard tissues are also examined, such as the jaw joint or temporomandibular joint (TMJ), for any irregularities. This is proceeded by checking the jaw joint, as well as the remaining soft tissue in your mouth for any signs of pathology. After a thorough examination is preformed your dental hygiene will be discussed which includes the entire cleaning process of brushing, flossing, diet and care.
A treatment plan is then formulated. Each plan is created or tailored to each individual based on their needs and concerns; discussing all the treatment options available and the pros and cons of each option. After each option has been discussed we will be able to create a treatment plan with transparent fee estimates. A Dentist at Skygate Dental Brisbane cares about your smile!
