Check Up and Clean

Maintaining Your Dental Health

At Mary St. Dental Health, we emphasise the importance of regular checkups and cleaning appointments as a fundamental aspect of maintaining excellent oral health. Our dedicated team of dental professionals is committed to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime. During your appointment, we provide a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and oral tissues, followed by a meticulous cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Our comprehensive approach ensures that your dental health remains in top condition and helps prevent potential dental issues from arising.

What to Expect During Your Check-Up and Clean Appointment

Comprehensive Dental Examination

Our skilled dentists will carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health concerns. Through state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and years of experience, we can detect dental issues in their early stages, allowing for timely intervention and treatment.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Our dental hygienists perform thorough cleaning procedures to remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth. Even with regular brushing and flossing, some areas can be challenging to reach, making professional cleaning an essential step in maintaining optimal oral hygiene.

Oral Cancer Screening

As part of your checkup and cleaning appointment, we conduct an oral cancer screening to detect any early signs of abnormal tissues or lesions in your mouth. Early detection of oral cancer greatly increases the chances of successful treatment and improved outcomes.

Personalised Oral Care Advice

We believe in empowering our patients to take charge of their oral health. Following the examination and cleaning, our dental team will provide you with personalised oral care advice, including tips on proper brushing and flossing techniques, dietary recommendations, and lifestyle habits that can benefit your dental health.

Dental X-rays (if necessary)

Depending on your oral health needs, dental x-rays may be taken during your appointment to get a more comprehensive view of your teeth and underlying structures. X-rays aid in diagnosing potential issues that may not be visible during a regular examination.

Benefits of Regular Check-Ups and Clean Appointments


Early Detection and Prevention

Regular appointments allow us to identify dental issues in their early stages, such as cavities and gum disease. Timely intervention can prevent these issues from progressing, saving you from more extensive and costly treatments in the future.

A clean and well-maintained smile not only improves your oral health but also enhances the appearance of your teeth, boosting your overall self-confidence.
