At Clarity Dental, our goal is to help you and your family achieve optimal oral health. Brushing and flossing are important for achieving this. But adding routine dental hygiene check-ups to your oral health regime will help you maintain your best oral health possible!

In their early stages, tooth decay, gum disease and other oral diseases are asymptomatic. By attending regular dental hygiene appointments, potential issues can be detected and remedied early on. Prevention is always better than cure!

Having good oral health is key to good overall health. So, our dentists recommend you visit us biannually to keep your and your family’s oral health in check.

What does a dental hygiene appointment look like?

Coming in for a dental hygiene appointment at Clarity Dental will usually involve:

A Comprehensive Assessment

Your dentist will go through a comprehensive oral examination with you during which they will assess the health of your gums, teeth and soft tissue in your mouth.

Professional Cleaning

This is like a deep clean for your mouth! It involves a thorough cleaning of your teeth to remove plaque and get into all the hard to reach places, including just under your gum line. We then apply fluoride to protect your teeth from decay.

A Personalised Treatment Plan

If during your oral assessment your dentist finds that you need treatment, they will create a personalised treatment plan for you. They will explain your treatment plan to you in detail and allow you the time to ask any questions you may have. This means you can decide on how to proceed with confidence.
