A dental check up is important, and we understand and value this at Midway Dental Clinic. From children as young six months of age to the elderly, we have been looking after families’ teeth well over 50 years.
What happens in a dental check up?
We will start with a full tooth and gum check up so you can be made aware of the health of your mouth.
Then you will receive a scale, clean and polish to remove any plaque and tartar build-up around your teeth and gums. This will leave you with a smooth and refreshing feel around your mouth.
Your check up will also involve a fluoride application which helps strengthen your teeth and prevent cavities. Fluoride is a natural mineral found in the earth and water. It does an excellent job of reducing dental decay and rot. You can find fluoride in our waters, toothpastes and mouth gels. Learn more about fluoride at: https://www.ada.org.au/Your-Dental-Health/Children-0-11/Fluoride.
After we clean and strengthen your teeth, we also need to make sure you keep your teeth clean! We will take the time to give you some hygiene tips and tricks! These include tips on:
- Brushing techniques
- Types of brushes and toothpastes
- Flossing demonstrations
- Mouthwashes and,
- Your diet
We suggest you visit us for a dental check up every 6 months. In this way, your teeth and gums can remain as healthy as they can be. Don’t worry, we will always call, text or email you a reminder of your dental check up date.
We also just love to chat and catch up with you!
