Oral Exams and Cleaning Miranda

You may think you only need dental check-ups every 6 months, but some may not need to visit so often, and others may need to go more frequently.

Proper care and prevention of oral diseases are the best things you can give to your teeth. Addressing problems before they occur will save a lot of time (and money!) in the long run – it might save your tooth from being pulled or undergoing complex treatment.

Visit your Miranda dentist at least twice a year to get your teeth examined and cleaned.

Some non-dental health conditions have symptoms that show in the mouth.

An oral examination can reveal symptoms of vitamin and iron deficiencies, osteoporosis, or more serious health conditions like diabetes, cancer, HIV and glandular fever, to name a few.

Oral Examinations

At each dental check-up, your Miranda dentist should:

  • Examine your teeth, gums and mouth.
  • Ask about your general health and any issues you’ve had with your teeth, mouth or gums since your last visit.
  • Ask about, and give you advice on, diet, smoking and alcohol use, and oral hygiene routine.
  • Schedule your next visit.

Cleaning

Your teeth will also be cleaned on your dental visit. Brushing and flossing may help remove plaque, but not stubborn tartar.

During the cleaning procedure, your Miranda dentist will use special equipment to remove tartar. This is called scaling.

Your teeth may be polished after scaling. Usually, a gritty paste is used for this. It helps to remove any stains from the surfaces of your teeth.

The last step is flossing. Your Miranda dentist will use floss to make sure the areas between your teeth are clean.

After the Examination

Once the exam is done, your Miranda dentist can give you advice on what to do next.

Treatment can be discussed to treat stained, chipped, crooked, and missing teeth, as well as those teeth with cavities and gum disease.

It is important that you listen to this advice and put it into action as best you can to guarantee that your next check-up is at its best.

What to do between dental visits

Practice a regular oral hygiene routine between dental visits.

Plaque always forms on teeth, but you can combat it by brushing and flossing regularly.

Here are some tips for oral care at home:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day using a fluoride toothpaste and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Floss once daily.
  • Use an antibacterial mouthwash to help control bacteria and keep your breath fresh.

Why is visiting the dentist important?
Visiting the dentist will not only help keep your teeth and mouth healthy but will also help keep the rest of your body healthy. Dental care is important because it protects you against gum disease, which can lead to tooth and bone loss.
How often should I go to the dentist for a check-up?
Most dentists recommend that you visit for a check-up and clean twice a year, while others may schedule yearly appointments. If you have an ongoing oral problem, your dentist may suggest more frequent visits.
How often should I brush and floss?
Brush your teeth at least twice a day – preferably once in the morning and once at night. Daily flossing is the most effective way to clean where your toothbrush misses – between the teeth and under the gumline.
