Check-up & Cleaning
Leeming advanced prevention program
At Leeming Dental, we believe you should be fully informed of your oral health. We focus on prevention is best. Regular check-ups allow us to assess your teeth and identify any potential risks before they develop further with the addition of regular cleaning that is critical to ensure the prevention of periodontal and other oral disease. Our dentists take all the necessary steps to gently evaluate the state of all your teeth. This process may include X-rays and high-resolution photographs to reveal less visible, potential damage or disease.
5 steps of our Advanced Teeth Maintenance Program:
- Full-mouth examinations
- Scale, polish and clean
- Oral care, hygiene instructions & advice
- Fissure sealants / teeth fluoridating
- Oral pathogen screening
As always, prevention is better than a cure. Undesirable conditions such as decay, bad breath, and diseased gums are all preventable.
We recommend you check with our dentist the condition of your teeth and required check-ups and cleaning period to maintain your oral health.
Leeming Dental Centre uses the latest technology to examine and assess your teeth. We offer teeth cleaning treatments to ensure stain removal and tooth decay prevention.
What does a check-up involve?
Here at Leeming Dental Centre, our X-ray is safe, using incredibly low amounts of radiation. We use the CS 9600 CBCT scanner for both OPG and Cone Beam CT 3D scanning. This advanced technology allows for a speedy, accurate and non-invasive scanning procedure.
A highly concentrated fluoride gel is used after your dental clean. This gel strengthens your teeth and prevents future occurrences of decay.
This is the main opportunity we can strengthen your teeth enamel after the check-up and cleaning process.
Your back teeth (molars) have tiny pits and grooves that can get quite deep. They are hot spots for plaque and bacteria. These pits and grooves are often too small for a regular toothbrush and it is extremely difficult to reach the plaque and bacteria in them. This is how decay and cavities form. The good news is that fissure sealants may be applied to them –helping prevent the onset of tooth decay.
