General Examination and Hygiene at Melton

General Examination and Hygiene - Melton - Melton Dental House
General examinations are an important part of overall dental health, and professional hygiene visits are an excellent aspect of preventive oral health care. When you get regular dental exams, the dentist has time to update your medical history and can catch problems early, so they don’t become large health issues. Our dentists at Melton Dental House enjoy serving our patients with comfortable and low-stress dental visits to make oral health care a pleasant experience.

Professional dental hygiene and cleanings can keep your teeth as fresh and clean as possible. At the same time, this service is considered preventive because it is one of the only ways to remove calculus and tartar from your teeth, which can help lower your risk for cavities and gum disease.

General Examination and Hygiene - Melton - Melton Dental House
The goal of a general examination at Melton Dental House is to check for early signs of infection and decay. X-rays can help us identify hidden problems and stop any issues before they take over and harm your oral health. When left unchecked, the infection can spread and small dental problems can become larger problems, leading to costlier treatments. Some dental and oral health problems that can be found and resolved early with a dental checkup include:
Tooth decay and hidden cavities
Impacted wisdom teeth
Early signs of gum disease
Early tooth wear and erosion due to teeth grinding

Health Problems That May be Associated with Oral Health

 
The body is one interconnected network of systems, each affecting the other. That’s why our skilled dentists are exceptionally diligent at identifying oral health issues and offering dental solutions to repair problems, as well as recommending preventive measures to avoid future problems. The following are some health issues that are related to or linked to oral health.

Acid Reflux

Is one of the more common problems that affect oral health. Acid reflux is a condition in which stomach acids back up and can begin to erode tooth enamel. If your teeth are corroded, we can identify if your issue may be acid reflux or another common problem known as bruxism or teeth grinding.

Diabetes

Puts patients at a higher risk for gum disease. This may be because those with diabetes are at a higher risk of infection anywhere in the body, including the mouth. Even worse, gum disease can affect a patient’s ability to control their blood sugar, especially diabetics. Regular checkups and professional dental cleanings can help keep the risk of gum disease low and help patients with diabetes to better manage their health.

Candida Overgrowth

Is an infection that can spread into the bloodstream and mouth, affecting your oral health. Oral thrush is a disease of oral candidiasis or an overgrowth of candida that takes over the mouth. It may look like thick, white patches on the gums and roof of the mouth, which may sometimes be painful. This condition can be identified during a general examination, and professional dental cleaning may be used to help restore oral health and prevent future infections.

Leukemia

Is a disease that often requires chemotherapy, which can put a patient at a greater risk for early gum disease and periodontitis. Gum disease and periodontitis are characterised by swollen, bleeding gums and can lead to tooth loss and spreading infection. Our dentists can use regular exams to detect early gum disease and stop it in its tracks. We also treat periodontitis and can recommend regular professional hygiene visits to keep gum disease at bay.
Oral hygiene is an important part of overall health and having regular dental checkups and cleanings are an easy way to prevent future oral health issues and bigger dental problems. Having a general dental examination every 6-12 months can allow for early intervention of dental problems and help prevent future problems.

Professional Oral Hygiene Services at Melton Dental House

Our professional dental hygiene service is an opportunity for a dental hygienist to have a look around your mouth to identify signs of gum disease, calculus buildup, or other issues that can interfere with oral hygiene. It also serves as another preventive step to find any issues that may have been concealed during the checkup.

A professional dental cleaning is one of the only ways to remove plaque or tartar from teeth. Plaque is a buildup of bacteria that forms a sticky film to coat teeth. When not properly removed, it can harden into plaque and trap more bacteria and debris under it while hiding holes in the teeth at the same time.

Regular brushing and flossing can help remove some of this buildup, but for most patients, plaque can still form. A professional cleaning can easily remove this especially if cleanings are held to a regular schedule. This allows the hygienist to remove the plaque before it is overly hard, which makes for a more comfortable and quicker dental visit.

Once the plaque is removed, your teeth will be scrubbed with a gritty toothpaste to remove any excess tartar or calculus buildup and deeply clean your teeth. This is followed by professional tooth polishing leaving you with a fresh and healthy smile that you can feel good about.

Update Your Smile

 
A general examination and professional teeth cleaning can help keep your oral health in check. These appointments are also a great time to talk to your dentist about any dental concerns you may have and also a good time to inquire about cosmetic services you are interested in. We welcome an open conversation about oral health because it is one of the best ways to inform yourself about what treatments are available while we have the opportunity to get to know you and your oral health goals. Together, we can form a treatment plan to bring forth your best smile.
