General Check-Ups

Importance of general dental check-ups

Even if you practise good oral hygiene and have no apparent dental problems, you still need to visit your dentist regularly for a general check-up.

Your dentist will be able to identify oral health concerns you may not be aware of. This facilitates early intervention to treat problems such as cavities and gum disease. And early treatment is often crucial for the best outcome.

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends six-monthly general check-ups.

These appointments will include a professional dental cleaning that’s more effective than your brushing and flossing, no matter how diligently you clean your teeth.

Your Regular Procedure

What happens at a dental check-up?

During a general dental check-up, your dentist will assess your overall oral health:

  • How each part of your mouth functions in relation to the others
  • Your bite (occlusion)
  • Teeth alignment
  • Condition of jaw bone
 

Your dentist will also:

  • Check for build-ups of plaque and tartar, which cause tooth decay and gum disease
  • Look for cavities – small holes on the surface of teeth, caused by decay
  • Check for signs of decay in dental enamel – the outer, protective layer of a tooth
  • Take X-rays to identify any areas of decay in dentine – the layer beneath enamel
  • Examine your gums for any signs of periodontal disease

Professional dental cleaning

Your dentist or dental hygienist will thoroughly clean your teeth to remove built-up plaque and tartar that can still develop despite regular brushing and flossing. Once plaque has calcified to form tartar, it can only be removed by a dental professional.

Special instruments are used to gently remove these deposits – including those in hard-to-reach areas – without damaging your teeth.

A professional cleaning also includes:

  • Polishing your teeth
  • Flossing between your teeth
  • Reviewing your brushing and flossing techniques
The Big Question

Should you visit your dentist more often for a check-up?

While six-monthly check-ups are the norm, people at greater risk of poor oral health need to see the dentist more frequently, including those who:

  • Smoke
  • Have diabetes
  • Are pregnant
  • Have a weakened immune system
