Dental Examinations & Cleans

Stay on top of your dental care. Good oral health contributes to good overall health. Our dentists will work with you to create personalised dental care and will aim to empower you to create good oral habits that you can practice at home.
Dental cleanings don’t just polish teeth, they remove plaque, tartar, and bacterial build-up that ordinary brushing and flossing may miss.

Gum disease can cause tooth loss, which can lead to more problems. Regular dental exams and cleaning, combined with good oral hygiene, helps prevent this.

What happens in a dental consultation?
During a dental consultation, your dentist will gather information about your health, concerns, oral hygiene habits and history. Your face, mouth, and teeth will also be examined for abnormalities and signs of decay, such as gum swelling and redness. Your teeth and gums will also be checked for evidence of tooth grinding, misalignment, and gum disease. Your dentist will also examine your palate, tongue, inner cheeks, lymph glands and neck for signs of infection or cancer. Photos and x-rays will be taken for comprehensive records and diagnoses. After the collection of all the information, the results will be discussed with you in ways you'll actually understand so a personalised treatment can be formulated if necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do my gums bleed during cleaning?
Gums bleed because they are inflammed. The gums will bleed when dental cleaning tools come in contact with inflammed gums, which is caused by calculus, which harbours bacteria. Scaling the teeth uses special tools that removes calculus and plaque in areas that normal tooth brushing can’t reach or remove. While cleaning may cause discomfort and bleeding, your teeth will be healthier afterwards.
Is it painful to have your teeth cleaned?
The better your oral health, the less painful teeth cleanings are. Teeth cleanings can be uncomfortable if you’re not in the habit of thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth. Flossing is important as it cleans off 40% of the plaque from your teeth, so not regularly doing this creates build up that becomes harder to clean. However, we utilise the latest technology which significantly reduces discomfort during cleaning.
What happens during a dental cleaning?
During the cleaning, your dentist or dental hygienist will use a small metal instrument called a scaler to scrape off tartar build-up above and below the gum line. Then a small, ultrasonic device will loosen up plaque and tartar from your teeth, which is rinsed away with a small jet stream of water. Your teeth will then be polished with a lightly abrasive paste so that it will be more difficult for plaque to accumulate until your next cleaning.
Why does my teeth feel sensitive after cleaning?
Along with bleeding, you may also feel teeth sensitivity during and after your cleaning or prophylaxis. These are normal because the dentist’s cleaning tools do a great job in creating a clean surface. This clean surface is like having a clean shaven face; it's going to be a little sensitive until it roughens back up.
