Dental Examinations & Oral Cancer Screening
Dentistry is founded on the principle of prevention. All patients are recommended six monthly examinations and hygiene cleans. Not only do they help you quash dental problems before they arise, they leave your gums healthier, and your teeth cleaner and whiter. Professional hygienist cleaning removes hard plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It also involves a fluoride treatment and polish to help protect and soothe your teeth and gums. Even if you haven’t had a cleaning in over two years, it’s never too late to treat your teeth.
What are some preventative measures I can take?
Brush with a fluoride toothpaste
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal
Floss twice daily, especially before bedtime
Use an oral rinse after flossing
Avoid frequent sugary foods, coffee, tobacco smoking and excess alcohol
