The standard recommendation for visiting
the dentist is at least two times a year. A biannual dental check-up has
two-fold benefits: you get to have a thorough examination of your oral cavity,
and you get your teeth cleaned through scaling.
Our dentists do exactly just that on
routine dental appointments. Your oral health is critically assessed, and any
evidence of plaque or tartar is effectively removed. Plus, each patient will be
advised on how to look after their oral health at the end of the session.
Here are some additional aspects that are
looked into during a routine dental check-up:
Scaling is the process that removes
plaque and tartar from your teeth and gums. This is the yellowish material that
forms at the area where your teeth abut the gum line.
Overtimes, tartar can harden into
something called calculus. Calculus
can then break off during brushing or after a meal which can make your gums
bleed or cause you to aspirate the broken pieces.
Scaling and polishing make an integral
part of a routine dental check-up at Wellness Dental Studio so that you can
leave with plaque-free teeth.
This process takes only a few minutes and
is overall comfortable.
Halitosis or bad breath is a common problem that patients present with. Often
the cause of bad breath is poorly understood by most. Our dentists, after a
thorough examination, investigate the reason and present the solution to this
In most cases, bad breath is a cumulative
result of poor oral hygiene and a build-up of bacteria in the oral cavity.
Other times, the reason for bad breath might not have an oral source at all.
A routine general dental check-up at our
clinic includes looking for the cause of bad breath and delivering the right
Oral cancer is associated with multiple
risk factors such as smoking, alcohol, poor diet etc.
Most oral cancers, even at their early
stages, can be detected at a routine dental check-up. During a general
examination of the oral cavity, our dentists pay close attention to any
abnormal growths in the mouth that could point to malignancy, as a part of an
oral cancer screen.
