Staff with female patientWhat to Expect

During our standard check and clean appointment, you’ll be able to relax in our comfortable cushioned dental chair, tune out and either listen to soft music or take your pick of what to watch on Netflix or FTA TV. If our team detects any dental concerns or underlying issues, they will discuss the matter openly and honestly, providing you with information about how to best address the matters.

Dental check-ups generally involve

  • Informative general discussions regarding any dental concerns and requests
  • An evaluation of your oral health
  • An oral cancer check
  • Scale and Clean
  • Necessary dental X-rays
  • Hints and tips about how to better care for your teeth and gums at home-reducing the risks of future dental issues from occurring
  • Referral for further treatment, if necessary

Dental issues that are not addressed and promptly treated with preventive measures will progress to serious dental concerns. If you are suffering from tooth pain or haven’t visited a dental professional in many years, you could be at risk of further damage and potential expenses.

Attending regular check-up and cleans is an essential way to live a healthy life. One extremely detrimental (though relatively painless) dental condition is gum disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and gum inflammation which can then become incurable. Smile Central provides a service of exceptional preventive care to avoid these serious stages and will do everything we can to help you overcome such problems.

Smile Central will perform a professional dental clean to remove food debris, surface stains and harmful build-up of tartar and plaque. a high concentrate topical fluoride is applied to each tooth surface. This process is recommended every three, six or twelve months based on your oral health status. We will also recommend preventive measures or further treatment, if necessary. It is important to receive a regular professional dental clean to regulate your risk of developing cavities, gum disease and cardiovascular health.

Removal of plaque: Plaque is a sticky, virtually invisible film that forms on your teeth. It often develops from the increased presence of bacteria, food debris and saliva. The bacteria produce toxins that inflame the gums, resulting in gingivitis, which can lead to periodontal disease.

Left undetected, periodontal disease can be highly damaging to teeth and underlying jawbone, eventually causing loose teeth. It has been clinically proven that gum disease is also is linked to heart disease and diabetes. If you have either condition, dental cleans should be a priority.

Removal of tartar: Tartar develops when plaque has been left on the tooth for several hours at a time. It begins to harden and firmly attaches to the tooth surface. A professional dental clean is the only solution to safely remove tartar from above and below the gum line.

Dental polishing: This final step involves the removal of surface stains and remaining plaque during the professional cleaning and scaling, leaving your enamel smooth and more lustrous, giving teeth a brighter appearance.
