Are tooth cavities and decay causing you to be concerned about your oral health? Have you been putting off going for your annual dental examinations? Identifying and treating tooth and gum issues early can go a long way to improving not only your oral health, but your overall health. Dr Danka can help by evaluating the health of your mouth and helping you to dramatically decrease the potential for your oral health problems becoming serious.

Warning Signs that you may need to visit your Dentist

There are many reasons why we put off going to the dentist. A fear of pain, the worry about being lectured, the expenses involved, and the worry about having a bad experience are just some of them. These are all normal anxieties that Dr Danka understands. Here are some warning signs that you may need to make an appointment with him.

  • You have broken, cracked or chipped teeth
  • You bleed when brushing your teeth
  • You have and abscess on the inside of your mouth
  • You experience severe toothache or pain and swelling in or around your mouth
  • You have incessant bad breath
  • Bleeding or inflamed gums
  • Sensitive teeth especially when you drink or eat hot or cold foods
  • You have difficulty chewing
  • You have an uneven bite

Why is it important to have a Routine Dental Check-Up?

Many of us tend to take our teeth for granted. Besides making you look more attractive, your teeth aid in chewing and breaking down food. We all know that a good oral hygiene regime will prevent a range of oral health issues but we still put off going to the dentist.

Regular check-ups can help you to prevent tartar, plaque, cavities and tooth decay. Even the most meticulous person can sometimes fail to properly clean those hard-to-reach places which is why a visit to the dentist is crucial. If you visit your dentist at least every 6 months, chances of serious oral issues developing are dramatically reduced.

Maintaining routine check-ups with Dr Danka can go a long way in ensuring your teeth and gums stay healthy and strong for a long time. If your problems are diagnosed early, they can be treated and fixed early. This will ultimately save you a whole lot of time, pain, stress, and money.

What can I expect when I go for a Dental Check-Up?

Comprehensive dental examinations are imperative as they enable Dr Danka to detect your oral issues early and form a treatment plan best suited to you. This will make them more manageable and decrease the likelihood of more serious problems later on.
Here’s what you can expect at your dental check-up:

  • The doctor will ask you how long it’s been since your last visit
  • He will ask you about general health problems you may have and if there are any problems with your teeth and gums.
  • Dr Danka will then proceed to examine your mouth, teeth and gums.
  • He will check your bite and see how well your jaws come together.
  • Your teeth will be probed for signs of decay.
  • He will discuss a date for your next visit and advise you on how to properly take care of your teeth as well as give you advice on alcohol, diet, and smoking habits.

Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is a crucial part of your overall oral hygiene. Cleaning your teeth eliminates plaque build-up and tartar that cause tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth cleaning should not be confused with teeth whitening which is a cosmetic procedure. Whitening your teeth is done to remove stains and discolouration.

Warning Signs that you may need Teeth Cleaning

  • You have halitosis (persistent bad breath)
  • Your gums are swollen, red, tender, or bleed
  • The tartar and plaque are visible on your teeth
  • You have an unpleasant taste in your mouth
  • Receding gums

How does the teeth cleaning process work?

Professional teeth cleaning is a procedure that is best performed by an experienced dentist like Dr Danka. You can expect the following when you have your teeth cleaned:

  • A mouth rinse – this is done to remove anything that can harm your teeth or obstruct the doctor’s view.
  • An oral exam – the doctor will examine your teeth, gums, and whole mouth. This is to check for signs of inflammation, decay, or other oral problems.
  • Teeth cleaning – Dr Danka will then clean your teeth using dental tools designed to remove plaque and tartar.
  • Polish – a professional polish and floss will then be done in order avoid future build-up.
  • Rinsing – the doctor will either spray water or a rising solution to remove tartar residue.

After your cleaning, Dr Danka may give you a fluoride treatment to protect your teeth against cavities until your next dental check-up. He may also suggest ways in which you can improve your oral hygiene. If any issues were found during your procedure, the doctor may suggest a follow-up visit to deal with them. He will then schedule your next teeth cleaning session.
