Not everyone loves the dentist, but research shows people who visit their dentist at least once a year for preventative care are happier with their smile. While we all do the best to brush properly, professional teeth cleaning removes plaque, the soft yellowish build-up, and calculus (hardened plaque) we can’t get to. This soft build-up is made up of billions of different types of bacteria that live and reproduce in our mouth by feeding on the food we eat.
Dental cleaning procedure will reduce your chance of getting cavities or gum disease by significantly reducing the amount of plaque and calculus in your mouth. The question is how regularly we should get our teeth cleaned. The response is usually: “That depends”.
Most private health insurance schemes cover a dental check-up and clean once every six months. But there’s no hard and fast evidence, particularly if you’re a healthy person who is less likely to get a cavity or gum disease. However, some people are at higher risk of getting dental cavities or gum disease – and this group should get their teeth cleaned more often.
Your answers to the following question would determine the intervals of professional tooth cleaning for yourself
We know certain health and lifestyle factors can affect a person’s risk of developing cavities. Here are some yes/no questions you can ask yourself to understand whether you’re at a higher risk:
- is your drinking water or toothpaste fluoride-free?
- do you snack a lot, including on sweets?
- do you avoid flossing?
- do you brush your teeth less than twice a day?
- do you visit your dentist for toothaches rather than check-ups?
- do you need new fillings every time you visit the dentist?
- is your dentist “watching” a lot of early cavities?
- do you have to wear an appliance in your mouth such as a denture or braces?
- do you suffer from a chronic long-term health condition such as diabetes?
- do you suffer from a dry mouth?
If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, you’re likely to need to see your dentist or hygienist at least every six months, if not more often. As well as removing the bug-loaded plaque and calculus, people prone to cavities benefit from the fluoride treatment after scaling. Evidence shows professional fluoride treatment every six months can lead to a 30% reduced risk of developing cavities, needing fillings or having teeth removed.
Composite-based veneers are sculpted by the dental surgeon directly on the patient’s teeth. As with porcelain veneers, composite veneers require an assessment beforehand to determine the shape and color. Their shade and shape are chosen so that an optimally aesthetic smile can be achieved while preserving as much dental tissue as possible.
The veneers are made in one visit at the practice by affixing aesthetic composite resin in different shades to achieve natural results and maximum preservation of the teeth.
