Does a Check-up and Cleanings Involve?
At Wellington Point Dental, we perform the following:
- Examination – your teeth will be examined using special hand tools. If a more thorough examination is required, we will take x-rays and photographs.
- Recommendation of treatment – if a treatment is needed, it may be administered right away, or else another appointment will be made.
- Comprehensive cleaning – your teeth are professionally cleaned, scaled and polished to get rid of plaque, tartar build-up, and food stains. We will also apply fluoride to prevent tooth decay and cavities.
- Oral health and dental hygiene education – your dental team at Wellington Point Dental will advise you on how you can properly maintain good oral health and prevent further issues.
