The importance of regular dental check-ups
Regular dental check-ups and cleans are offered by Honeysuckle Dental in Newcastle
Our friendly team at Honeysuckle Dental is committed to maintaining your excellent oral health to help you keep that healthy smile. Our dental team recommend regular check-ups every 6 months to ensure you receive the best oral health care.
Visiting the same dentist is important to form a relationship. As your dentist gets to know you and your oral history, it makes it easier to provide you with a unique service.
Why your dental check-up is important?
- Maintaining healthy teeth and gums
- Professional cleaning and removing tough stains and plaque
- Provides solutions to irritated oral areas
- Polished teeth
Professional dental cleans help with good oral health
Your appointment with our dental professionals will be in-depth and allow for your dental hygiene to be assessed. During your check-up, you will receive a professional clean to help remove hardened deposits and food/drink stains that home cleaning cannot. Leaving hardened deposits can cause issues such as tooth decay and gum disease.
Dentists use more than just their eyes
Do not rely only on human eyes, as dental x-rays will see much more. X-rays are not limited to the surface and are able to detect many underlying issues with the teeth, gums and jaw.
Dental x-rays detect:
- Tooth decaying (even under fillings)
- Cysts and infected areas
- Absent or extra teeth
- Presence of growths
- Presence of wisdom teeth
- Gum disease
- Bone/tooth fractures
Importance of regular dental check-ups for your children
Just like you, we would like to help your children have a happy smile. We care for your children’s oral care and believe from a young age they should be taught good oral hygiene. These early check-ups will also allow us to monitor your child for dental issues, such as missing or crooked adult teeth which may need care in the future.
Did you know that having healthy baby teeth is one key factor to achieving healthy adult teeth? Which is why our family-friendly dentists will try hard to make sure your children have a healthy development of their teeth and gums.
At home dental cleaning routine
In between dental visits, what should you be doing at home? We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and using mouthwash to ensure you eliminate bad breath, plaque, bacteria and maintain a healthy happy mouth.
