At Pimpama City Dental Centre, we believe prevention is better than cure. Regular examinations and cleans with your dentist will help to prevent dental decay, gum disease and also check for early signs of oral cancer.
During this appointment, we gather information relating to your current oral health. We will also collect your medical information, including current medications you may be taking, smoking habits and alcohol consumption. This will aid us in evaluating your risk of dental decay and gum disease.
Regular dental cleans are important in maintaining exceptional oral health by removing any plaque and calculus deposits that may have built up over time. Calculus (also known as tartar), is plaque that is hardened and bonded to the teeth which is impossible for you to remove with your toothbrush. Ensuring this build up is removed at least every 6 to 12 months will help keep your gums healthy and reduce your risk of gum disease.
