Check Up & Clean
At Bluebird Dental, our recommended six-month check-up and clean involves a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, in order to prevent minor problems from becoming major ones.
Check: Our friendly dentist and dental hygienist will ask you if you are experiencing any problems since your last visit and begin checking the health of your gums and for cavities to see if there is any plaque or tartar on your teeth. Our dentist will also check the tongue, throat, face and neck for any signs of trouble/swelling that may indicate any serious oral conditions.
Clean: Both plaque and tartar contain bacteria which can breakdown gums and teeth resulting in tooth decay if not removed frequently through brushing, flossing and professional cleans. Our dentist or hygienist uses special instruments to painlessly clear pieces of tartar, and provide deep cleaning above and below the gum line.
Once all the surfaces are smooth, the teeth are then polished to remove stains with an abrasive toothpaste-like material and fluoride.
At Bluebird dental, we also offer remineralising treatments to harden teeth of patients who experience weak teeth and find themselves vulnerable to holes.
