Healthy & Beautiful Smiles

Many people wonder if making it to their biannual dental appointment is really necessary. The short answer is – yes!

Preventive care helps reduce your risk for certain illnesses and can help you achieve and maintain excellent oral health, allowing you to look and feel your best. That’s why, at Casuarina Dental, we’re proud to offer thorough dental examinations and teeth cleaning services for adults and children.

Providing Your Medical History

Your biannual visit is a great opportunity to tell your dentist about any issues or discomfort you’ve been experiencing in your mouth. You’ll also want to give a detailed description of your medical history and come prepared with a list of any medications you take.

Knowing your medical history allows your dentist to gain a better understanding of your overall health. After all, there is a strong systemic link between the health of your mouth and the prevalence of many serious health concerns.

For example, periodontitis (advanced gum disease) is associated with heart disease, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, and low birth weight in babies born to mothers with the disease. Our knowledgeable dentists can identify subtle warning signs of dental conditions and offer preventative or restorative treatments.

General Dental Examinations

During your visit to our clinic in Casuarina, your dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth and check for signs of tooth decay. You’ll also be evaluated for risk factors associated with illnesses like bone loss and periodontal disease. This way, potential problems can be identified in their early stages while they are easily treatable.

Your dentist will also check your bite and may administer x-rays or recommend other diagnostic measures. If we find any areas of concern, our friendly team will discuss this with you and formulate a treatment plan.

Cleaning & Polishing Your Teeth

During your visit, your teeth will be gently and professionally cleaned. Our dental team will meticulously remove hard-to-reach plaque. At this time, we may provide information on how to improve your at-home care routine, and your hygienist can show you proper procedures for brushing and flossing.

A thorough clean not only helps improve the health of your teeth but also makes them look great! A good clean and polish can actually have a whitening effect on your smile. For an even brighter smile, we also offer teeth whitening services.

Frequently Asked Questions

For most patients, we recommend twice-yearly visits for cleans and exams. If you are currently being treated for a particular concern, we may recommend that you visit us more often. 

You don’t have to floss your teeth every day, however it is important to floss regularly in order to remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Plaque can cause tooth decay and gum disease, so it’s important to keep your mouth clean and healthy. 

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best course of action will depend on the underlying cause of your tooth pain. However, in general, it is always a good idea to see a dentist if you are experiencing any sort of tooth pain, as this can be a sign of a dental problem that needs to be addressed. If you are unsure whether or not your pain warrants a trip to the dentist, you can always give us a call and we can help you assess your situation.
