Many people dread teeth cleanings because they fear the dentist. Between the prodding, strange noises, and occasional jaw discomfort, it’s easy to understand their apprehension. But at StarKlinics, a teeth cleaning and checkup is painless and straightforward.
Knowing what we do during the process will help ease your stress and allow you to enjoy the results better.
1. Comprehensive examination
Undergoing a comprehensive Oral examination is one of the essential parts of maintaining good Oral hygiene. From our own experience, we can say that patients with regular dental checkups rarely experience dental emergencies and expensive or invasive treatments.
At StarKlinics, we will closely look at the structures in and around your face. By doing this, we can identify any pathology or lesions early on and treat them accordingly.
The examination also involves checking for dry mouth, consistency and quality of saliva, as this is a significant indicator of a person’s oral hygiene, diet and medication. Our dentist will examine your saliva and help you manage your dry mouth effectively, if necessary.
2. Scale and clean
Having a scale and clean regularly done at StarKlinics is a standard but important procedure to ensure your dental health and keep your own teeth for as long as possible. This will keep your smile looking fantastic and save you money in the long term.
We will remove any plaque and build-up of calculus on your teeth during the scale and clean procedure. This build-up is detrimental to your dental well-being; tooth decay and eventual loss of your teeth may result if plaque and calculus are not kept under control.
3. Digital X-rays
X-rays are invaluable in helping our dentist diagnose oral conditions and get a clear picture of the structure of your mouth. At StarKlinics, we use the latest digital X-Ray machine, which effectively reduces harmful radiation dose and increases image quality. They can show areas that a visual examination wouldn’t reveal, especially if you have fillings and identify any bone loss, cracks, infection, or abnormalities.
4. Intraoral and Diagnocam photos
This step offers superior quality images to early detection of tooth decay, cracks and breakdown of fillings that is not possible with other devices.
